The Leon Levy Preserve boasts hardwood forests, a ravine with 25-foot cliffs, views west toward the Hudson, and the ruins of a 32 room stone mansion. About 90 acres lie within the watershed of New York Citys Croton Reservoir system, and the rest of the land drains into Stamfords reservoirs. The town granted a conservation easement on the preserve to Westchester Land Trust to ensure its permanent preservation. For its share of the cost, the New York City Department of Environmental Protection also received a conservation easement, protecting the 90 acres of the property that is in the citys watershed.

Fun hike for kids with rocks to climb on occasionally and clearly marked trails. Make sure you bring your bug spray.
