Braddock Bay Raptor Research Trail is a 0.9 mile loop trail located near Hilton, NY. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for hiking.
The trail is a bit easy to miss but well worth it when you get there - though it's not long, going around more than once doesn't get boring. We even saw monarch butterflies of all things!!
A note: this trail has hunting trails branching off of it, so be careful during hunting season.
