The 447 acre property, better known as Wolf Hill, is part of the Helderberg Escarpment. Many different routes exist on the property. The property was originally farmed as far back as 1790. A few old cellar holes and wells have been found on the property, and stone walls ramble through the woods. Several old farm roads are still evident on the property. The steep slopes alternate with relatively flat terraces. In many places bedrock is at the surface. Low bush blueberries are abundant. Other plants found on the property include wild azalea and fringed polygala. The property was logged within the recent past and the remains of this activity are visible, including a large open area at the top and numerous brush piles.

A really nice area to hike; short or long, you can define the kind of loop you want. Starting with the nice kiosk at the front, the area is well maintained. The view does take some walking to get to and it's fair at this time of year (but probably beautiful in the fall). I will definitely return.
