I went walking in Kitchawan Preserve again on Monday. This time I explored the western portion of the Preserve. One trail terminates at Arcady Road. It looks like it would be easy to add a few parking spaces there but this has not been done.
Arcady Road used to connect Old Kitchawan Road to Croton Dam Road but a portion was damaged by Hurricane Floyd in 1999 and never repaired. The damaged portion has now been officially abandoned (pdf file see resolution 180). I walked down the road towards the closed portion. Auto traffic is blocked just past a driveway but you can walk a bit further until a chain link fence blocks the road.
I took the picture through the fence. It shows part of the road washed away.
