path towards athletic fields

This path is characteristic of the many paths on Fern Tor.  It is part of a path which followed the Hudson southwards, then curved back and up to the main house level.  Mrs. Reilly told me that the Newbolds used the many paths for carriage rides which would start and end at the main house.  Note the wall separating the regular college from Fern Tor.  The paths and two nice lookouts over the river  provide a peaceful difference between the hectic and often noisy atmosphere of a college campus.

The portion of the athletic field closest to Fern Tor has been improved since the time of this photo to provide a varsity level field for softball, still allowing a large tract of level space for intramural athletics.
