Location

From the intersection of the Northway and Rt US 20, Western Avenue: Drive West, approximately eight miles and turn left onto Route 146 toward Altamont. Route 146 turns right in the middle of Altamont onto Maple Ave. Take that turn onto Maple. Route 146 then turns left at the end of a long block; however, you should keep going straight; as you leave Altamont you will find that you are on the Bozenkill Road. The Preserve is about 3-miles from Altamont; the parking lot is on your left. The nearest homes are at 774 and 816 on the north side of Bozenkill Road; the parking lot is between them on the south side of the road.
