Pinecroft Preserve is a gently sloping, open 9 acre meadow full of native grasses, wildflowers, rushes, sedges, and shrubs. The preserve is one of the actively managed meadows in the Eastern Westchester Biotic Corridor, a 22,000-acre section of Lewisboro, Pound Ridge and North Salem with unusually high biodiversity values.  The meadow habitat of Pine Croft is maintained by annual mowing, which prevents the growth of woody plants and promotes the growth of flowers, grasses and sedges. Pine Croft Meadow Preserve was donated in memory of Waccabuc resident L. Emery Katzenbach, by his family, in 1999.  The trail is 0.2 miles.
