Kitchawan Preserve - Upper Level Beginner Hike

This is a mid level beginner hike when means there are a few light hills which are limited to the first third of the trip. We will take a side visit to the bridge over the Croton reservoir on the North County Trailway. Hiking time - About 2 hrs   - Total distance - 3.5 to 5 miles depending on exact route.

$1.00 fee for this event

Dogs are welcome and children 7 and up are welcome assuming they can handle two hours of activity.

Parking is limited here so I am limiting the number to 20.   I will expand that number if you are part of a carpool.

This property is a 208-acre natural preserve bordered by the New York City reservoir property and the North County Trailway, which runs along the eastern edge. The park features native woodland and open fields, where butterflies and migrating birds can be seen in abundance in late spring.

Kitchawan was a former research facility of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Hikers, through the trails and unpaved roads that traverse the property, will find remnants of old stone walls that typically divided crop fields and private properties a century ago.

 

Will update with phone number as we approach the date.   Rain cancels.

    For those on waitlist, if you are willing to park 5 minutes away by the bike trail, I can take 3 or 4 in my car. Parking at the site is limited which is why I have a cap in place. If this is of interest, send me an e-mail. Also with any beginner hike, there will likely be some dropouts before Friday.
