Terrific hike through the woods and along the creek on hard packed snow.

Great walk in the snow. Icy in some spots and bare in others. All in all a great walk!

HikingGreat!

We had a really nice walk here today. Lots of interesting boulder/rock formations and stone walls. Not a long walk and not much elevation change, so pretty easy. Some occasional traffic noise but it didn't detract from the experience and we only passed one person.

Nice trail! Relatively leveled. Taking the white trail, it was nice to see the bulls! Otherwise, besides the creek not much to see. Elevation is rather low so not many good sights, but the drive to the preserve is gorgeous!

The trail wasn’t awful. It wasn’t marked well. We also missed the trail map- we eventually found it at the end of the trail. It’s in the little blue hut across the street. That would’ve went very helpful. Also the crick was very dry :(

Quiet at 7am, had the trails to myself. Got a bit off trail near the stream but as long as you watch for markers its very easy to follow. Cool rock formations similar to the Helderbergs. Dogs loved all the wildlife smells. Had some technical issues so the recording is a mess.

A very nice walk in the woods. Park in the paved parking lot, cross the street and go to the enclosed kiosk. There you will find maps and other information. The trails are very well marked. Very, very nice. If you walk along the creek be aware that as you walk away from the creek you will walk on the road for a short distance, Eventually crossing the road. If your hike across the street starting at the kiosk you will have no problems with roads.
