Leon Levy Preserve

Leon Levy Preserve

The 383 acre Preserve features wetlands rich in wildlife, a ravine with 25 foot cliffs, views to the west as far as the Hudson River and a diverse hardwood forest.  Rare Purple Milkweed and Blue Cohosh plants have been found. Five miles of trails.

In 2005 the Westchester Land Trust and the Town of Lewisboro purchased this former Bell property.  This was made possible by a $5 million contribution from the Jerome Levy Foundation (Leon Levy was the primary benefactor) and $500,000 from the Dextra Baldwin McGonagle Foundation.


Easy to moderate


The main entrance is on Route 123, just south of the intersection with Route 35.  A white sign marks the entrance to the White Trail.  There is no parking along Lake Kitchawan Drive.  Parking for the Preserve is only located on the White Trail entrance on Route 123, Smith Ridge Road.
