Entrance on Taxter Road, 1.0 miles from Route 119.

GPS - try 222 Taxter Road

This small but interesting preserve just opened up a few years ago. It sits up top a ridge and can be considered a southern part of the famed Elmsford Ridge. Quiet in winter this may be a great place for spring warblers and some breeding birds such as Pileated Woodpecker and Ovenbird.

From Broadway
1. Take Broadway to Sunnyside Lane in Irvington. (1.1 mile south of Route 119, and 0.6 miles north of Main Street, Irvington)
2. Take Sunnyside Lane east for 0.6 miles. The road becomes Taxter Road. Go another 0.6 miles to the preserve on the right. (1.2 miles from Broadway)

From Saw Mill River Parkway (Northbound)
1. Take the Saw Mill River to Exit 21W, Route 119 Tarrytown.
2. Take Route 119 west 0.4 miles and turn left onto TaxterRoad. (Look for the left turn lanes at the light just before the large I-287 overpass). Take Taxter Road 1.0 miles to preserve on the left
