Policies and Guidelines

Preserve Use Guidelines

Teatown’s trails are open from dawn to dusk.

We encourage responsible use and contemplative enjoyment of the preserve. To this end, we ask that you carry out your trash, keep dogs on leashes, clean up after dogs, remain on the marked trails, and respect other visitors. Please observe wildlife from a distance and leave plants in place. Hiking, birding, nature study, strollers, and personal photography are welcome. Fires are prohibited.

Please feel free to report trail problems. In the case of an emergency while you are on the preserve, please call 911.
