YORKTOWN, N.Y. – A first-of-a-kind video titled, “The Trails of Yorktown,” was unveiled at a special showing on Saturday at the Trailside Café in Yorktown Heights.
The 4.43 minute video was created by Elizabeth Gmoser, a senior at Yorktown High School, as part of a civic internship program. Gmoser’s video documents Yorktown’s parks, trails and farms, and includes four season shots of some of Yorktown’s most popular outdoor locations, including Turkey Mountain; the Giant Boulder at Granite Knolls; the bridge over the Taconic State Parkway that links the Woodlands Legacy Trail with the trails at Granite Knolls; Teatown; and Hilltop Hanover Farm.
An avid hiker and runner, Gmoser’s project was a natural outgrowth of her love of the outdoors and other hobbies. In her “spare time,” Gmoser is also a Girl Scout and a Venture Scout. She will attend Northeastern University in the fall.
A presentation of “The Trails of Yorktown” before the town board is also being planned.
The presentation was presented by the Yorktown Trail Town Committee. Formed in 2014 as a not-for-profit organization, the committee’s dual mission is to leverage the town’s extensive network of foot and biking trails to promote economic development while at the same time providing greater recreational, health and social benefits to its residents and visitors.
