After visiting the Normans Kill West Preserve (a 1-mile hike), we wanted to visit the Normans Kill East Preserve not far up the road.

This Preserve is easy to find, and we parked at La Bella Associates.

If you can’t find Normans Kill Preserve in Google maps, just look for LaBella Associates (for some reason I had a tough time finding the actual preserve on Google Maps).

There are even spots marked in the parking lot for visitors of the Preserve.

This trail is an easy 1/2 mile loop. You can find the full-size map HERE.

There is a trailhead kiosk along the parking lot at the beginning of the trail, with a map and other information.

The trail is fairly easy, winding through the woods and then down to the water.

The trails are well-marked.

When we were at the preserve, there was a fun Gnome House Scavenger Hunt.
