With over 100 different bird species, other wildlife and wildflowers this is a nature lovers dream!

This preserve consists of 118 acres of protected land including the preserve, a family homestead and working farm.  The property is protected under a conservation easement with the Mohawk Hudson Land Conservation.  It was officially opened to the public May 20, 2017.

Upon driving up the driveway you will be greeted by signs featuring lyrics to "Imagine" by the Beatles.  On your left you will see the parking area and kiosk.  From here you can begin your loop hike of the Red Trail.  There will also be two short Yellow Trails.

The trails are very easy to follow and well marked.  Please respect the landowner and stay on the trails!  As always leave no trace!

Aside from birding, there are also over 300 vascular plant species!  Deer sightings are common along with other smaller wildlife.

You will spot some stone walls.  There were formed using glacial boulders and pieces of dolostone.  Also enjoy the scenic view of the Mohawk Valley.
