Hike through the Woodruff Outdoor Learning Center
New York › Robert B. Woodruff Trailhead
Added by Rebecca Nichols
Enjoy the sights and sounds from the several waterfalls running along the Otsquago Creek.
This little gem can be done by all. At only 1.25 miles this trail has a lot to offer. I recommend this self-guided nature trail to everyone.
Along the trail you can enjoy several waterfalls, beautiful scenery and limestone caves! In the winter enjoy snowshoeing or cross-country skiing and check out the ice formations along the creek and falls.
Also pay a visit to the old sawmill site to see the remains of the dam and some of the machinery used during that time.
If your lucky you may also see some wildlife and in the spring and summer months enjoy the wildflowers.

It's perfect for a picnic or short easy hike! The waterfalls are gorgeous and many swim in them on hot summer days as the falls are spring fed. I took my senior photos here. The caves aren't true spelunking caves but they are fun to crawl around in! Awesome place for children or any who aren't looking for a super hard hike.
