Winifred Matthews Holt Preserve is a 148-acre property on the western face of Copeland Hill in the Town of New Scotland with many different loops and trails. The perimeter traverses the Green, Yellow, Blue, Orange, and Red Trails. The softwood plantations and mixed hardwood forests, small clearings, pond, meandering stream, wetland, and seasonal rivulets that flow from seeps in the hillside into the underlying Onondaga limestone provide an exciting amount of diversity. From the bottom of the deepest ravine, along the terraces and to the summit of the hill, the varied ecosystems of this hillside are protected for the people of the area.

This area as a whole is everything you might want in the outdoors. Steep climbs, level walks, deep woods, ravines, nature pond, open trails, tight trails. The upper portion of this trail (Green and Yellow) was AWESOME, some of the best hiking in the area and very well used. The lower potion of the trail (the Red ... Dr. Holt Trail) was horrible!!! Muddy, deep grass, ticks ... you name it ... if I were judging that trail alone, I would give this a 1 and never return. But the top area is pure heaven ... awesome.
