Almost 30 years in the Utica area and after seeing the viewing tower from 5 8 12 figured about time to check this out. It’s a gem! Seems like so far from urban setting. Went on hot day so critters and water was quiet but many large birds viewed. Definitely will go back late April or early May during migration. Actually biked the Stone dust paths on gravel bikes from the N Genesee st parking area. Mileage stated is accurate

Nice walk. You start out on the canal path. It is about a 1.5 mile walk in until you reach the train tracks. From there is just down the hill on the left. The trail does go all the way around now I just didn't do that this day. Blue heron and Canada Geese are regularly seen here. Snapping turtles and painted can be seen as well. You can also see a variety of flowers.
