Westmoreland Grand Tour is a 5.3 mile loop trail located near Bedford, New York and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and birding and is accessible year-round.
Enjoyable hike though I still find the signage confusing after hiking here five times. Deer flies were killer today! But no complaints, out in nature on a glorious day, while it was a steamy hot day (95) it was still cool and beautiful. No other hikers in sight.
I enjoyed this trail more than Butler. The description of 50 foot incline is a mistake. As a matter of fact the trail has 500 feet inclines and has some of the most beautiful scenery around. We saw lots of nature, including two grey heron, toads, a leaf frog, garden snakes, chipmunks and the like. There were old stone walls and grasslands in the middle of the woods that harken back to what once was. I would highly recommend this for a good workout and is nearly a 6 mile hike when you follow the outer trails. Loved this one!!!
The beauty of this hike is the convenience; Right off Rt 684. Good easy hike in the woods.
