Long Description:

Both sections of the 436 acre park are 5 miles apart along the Taconic State Parkway. The land was donated to the State of New York by Donald J. Trump in 2006. There are current proposals (2021) to have the name of the park changed.

Indian Hill Section is located off of Indian Hill road and has a limited trail system though the parking area saw some improvements in 2019.

French Hill section is located off of Old Baldwin Road and is an unimproved park with no established trails. There is some ruins of the former estate that once existed here.

From Wikipedia:
Donald J. Trump State Park is a 436-acre (1.8 km2) state park in the towns of Yorktown and Putnam Valley in Westchester County and Putnam County, New York.

The park consists of property that was donated to New York State in 2006 by developer Donald Trump. Maintenance of the park was halted in 2010 due to budget constraints, and the park remains largely undeveloped. Most of the buildings have been demolished; only a few foundations and the existing tennis court remain. There have been several calls to rename the park.
