Pawling Nature Preserve Loop is a 2.9 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Pawling, New York that features a lake and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from January until October.
Entrance is not easy to find. Pick up a map in the store next to the train station. There are three trails. White shows the Appalachian trail. Yellow is a short. Did not do the red trail. The trail was difficult to follow in the fall with all the leaves on the ground. I could not find the entrance by route 22.
Well marked trails, easy to moderate hiking, also good for trail-running.
