Baxter Preserve is an area of open space in North Salem, New York, USA. It consists of two segments, Baxter South and Baxter North.
Baxter South land was donated to the North Salem Open Land Foundation (NSOLF) in 1979 by "The Baxter Road Group" and is by far the most popular and well-used of all the parcels owned by the NSOLF. Baxter South includes a large pond surrounded by the remains of a racetrack, and many trails, which are well traveled by people on foot and horseback.
The original 1979 parcel consisted of 114 acres (46 ha) on the south side of Baxter Road, but in 1985, the "Baxter 1981 Associates" donated an adjacent 15 acres, bringing the total acreage to 129 acres (52 ha).
Directly opposite the Baxter South Parcel, Baxter North is a smaller area of 37 acres (15 ha), which was donated by the Baxter Road Group in 1980. It consists of a high meadow with a stand of trees at the northwest end and is an excellent spot for looking over the Baxter South parcel to the Titicus Reservoir.
