A Trail to the Trails

While northern Westchester is blessed with a great number of hiking trails, almost all of them go north-south, and few of them connect to each other. But the Teatown Lake Reservation is working to create a new Teatown-Kitchawan trail to provide an east-west connection between a number of trails. (Click the map above to enlarge it.) The so-called T-K trail would link the John Hand Park and Kitchawan Preserves and would create connections between the Old Croton Aqueduct Extension Trailway, the Briarcliff-Peekskill Trailway, the North County Trailway, and Teatown Lake Reservation. The 3.7 mile trail would run through southern Yorktown, crossing land owned by the Department of Environmental Protection and Westchester County. Image: Teatown Lake Reservation
