FURNACE BROOK HEADWATER PRESERVE

Maple Avenue, Town of Cortlandt, Westchester County, New York


Saw Mill Parkway north to exit for Hawthorn; left turn at light onto Route 9 north; get off at the exit for Buchanan/Montrose, just after the green mileage marker indicating 21 90; right turn onto Route 9A; left turn in a very distance onto Furnace Dock Road; set odometer at 0, and at .8 bear left, at 1.1 turn right after stopping at stop sign, at 3.5 turn left onto Maple Avenue. Supposedly the preserve should be within about .9 from the intersection of Furnace Dock Road and Maple Avenue.

I could not find this park although I checked the area. I even stopped to ask at the Maple Avenue Country Deli that should be directly across from the preserve, but they had no idea of what I was talking about. Perhaps it is undeveloped.
