TRAIL INFORMATION: Trail is rated 3C and is not suitable for wheelchairs or strollers. This 304 acre park lies in the Town of Vestal close to the Pennsylvania border. It features 4 miles of well maintained trails that range from easy, flat loops to steep climbs. The main trail sections meander around and through a beautiful creek. There are several spots where the trail crosses right over. This makes hiking here a lot of fun but be sure to watch out if the water is flowing steadily. If you keep your eyes peeled you might find remnants of days past throughout the park. One of the cool sightings is the old fireplace that, rumor has it, is leftover from an cabin fire a while back.
