Braddock Bay Raptor Research Trail is a 1.6 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Hilton, New York that offers the chance to see wildlife and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible from March until October.
Quiet calm place to be on a windy day.
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.
