Began this hike from route 22 and explored some of the trails in the Pawling Nature reserve. Saw at least a half a dozen pileated woodpeckers. Morning well spent

Started off route 22 on the Appalachian. In and out semi loop. Nice farmland crossing into woods. Met up with conservation trails to loop around Quaker lake and return. Was difficult to find the red. Did a bit of trailblazing to find it eventually.

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.
