Pine Orchard Trail is a 5 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Wells, New York that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is best used from March until October.
Early April .. trails still snow/ice covered ... too treacherous for our family of 4 with puppy in tow!
When we arrived to the parking lot, it was full of cars to which we later found belonged to an active group of hiking seniors that beat us to the Orchard. The lightly used snowmobile trail offered a stable hiking/skiing/snowshoe base. A beautiful walk in the woods to some nice large trees. Another point of interest is the very large boulder 100+ yards to the right of the orchard which sits in the middle of the woods with no rhyme or reason to it's original location. It obviously traveled some distance via glacier from it's original location.
