Fox-Barry Preserve
Cantitoe Street, Bedford, Westchester County, New York
Owned by the Westchester Land Trust.


US 684 north to exit 4 (Route 172 south); turn right onto Route 172 (South Bedford Road); follow this into Bedford Village, taking Route 22 north; the name of Route 22 north of its intersection with Route 121 (Old Post Road) is Cantitoe Street. I parked at an informal pull-off  near the small green mileage marker 4165 (bottom number).   


Has BRLA (Bedford Riding Lanes Association ) trails.

5/20/04. From where I parked (near mileage marker 4165) I did not see any trails.  But I did find the small Westchester Land Trust signs nailed to trees.  I walked down the somewhat steep slope to see if I could find the trails.  I did not.  I walked along a stream near a house.  Brief visit.  There are a lot of invasive plants here.  There is a lot of skunk cabbage also.
