    Daniel Case
    "Excellent views and varied terrain make this small nature preserve in northern Westchester County an ideal short loop. A short hike with moderate climbs takes you to Turkey Mountain’s 832-foot summit, and possibly the best views of any trail in Westchester County. The preserve is a small tract (125 acres) but within its former farmland are some diverse forest types. An open-air classroom has been built off the trail for the benefit of local school districts, which frequently take students here for field trips during the school year. The land, sections of which have been used as ski trails, farmland, and a summer camp, was acquired by the town to protect it from development. The Yorktown Land Trust, a citizen group founded in 1986 to preserve open space in the town, handles maintenance of trails. The group publishes several leaflets, including one that serves as a guidebook to Turkey Mountain and the town’s other “quiet areas.” (Send an email to yorktownlandtrust@gmail.com. to request a leaflet.)"
