The short trail loop of the 20-acre Phillipin Kill Preserve traverses the woodland hills and winds along the wetlands that protect the waters of the Phillipin Kill creek. Walk quietly and you could view nesting wood ducks or beavers active in the nearby wetlands.
This 20-acre property was given to MHLC in 2000 to mitigate the wetland impacts created from the development of the Mansions housing development. With more than 1,000 feet of frontage on the Phillipin Kill and a mix of upland, floodplain, and wetland, the preserve provides protection to the waters which feed the Vloman Kill and Hudson River. Additional protection to this important water resource includes MHLC’s Touhey Family Preserve located on the opposite side of the Phillipin Kill.
There are reserved spaces near the preserve sign in the Mansions parking lot along Fisher Boulevard.
