My Happy Place in WNY! Loving the ADK the way I do and living in WNY. This is always a great place to go if you miss the ADK or need to do some conditioning.

Clearly marked trails and a little bonus loop if you cross the “bridge too far” .Trails were a little muddy in some spots and some spots down by the creek have lots of tree roots so you have to watch where you step. I hiked with my 2 year old on my back in a carrier and it was a nice little workout. All and all this trail has it all.

This is one of my favorite places to hike and relax, especially if you go on a weekday. I’ve never run into more than just a few people. You park on a main road, but after about a half mile in it is totally quiet and peaceful. It can get pretty muddy in the spring and there are also a lot of bugs. Early to mid summer is best, when everything is lush and you can just relax and smell the fresh air.

Nice trail, but muddy at times and a few large root gardens that can trip you up.

Please, please mark your trails better. Went through the Old Scarbuck Entrance following the yellow trail and ended up lost in the woods for 2 hours following misleading marked trees.

Beautiful forest just unfortunately confusing beyond belief. I even checked Instagram to see who else has checked in there to find that someone else posted about getting lost for 3 hours there.

Take a compass and know which way you'll need to be!

Great trail. One of my favorite in the area. Old growth forest, quiet, and peaceful.

Short, quick hike. I do believe it's more than the stated 2 miles, maybe I took an extension of it? There appears to be some old growth forest, or it is just incredibly mossy, which was really cool. Part of the forest is second growth, with pine trees in perfect rows and tight, creating a pretty cool effect. Slippery and bridges are in need of some repairs. Great place to bring the dogs.

This is a peaceful, well-marked trail. It's the perfect place for a quick and relatively easy hike in the woods. Enough variation to keep it interesting, without it being difficult. It has a few streams, mostly wooded. One of my favorites.

A great walk in the woods. There are 2 loops that total 3 miles. You can do both loops without backtracking.
