"Kitchawan Preserve 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, located on the Croton Reservoir, was a former research facility of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Hikers can find remnants of old stone walls that typically divided crop fields and private properties a century ago."
