Park consists of 182 acres of hiking and nature trails, a waterfall and natural scenic beauty, Open free of charge year round, activities such as cross country skiing, snowshoeing, bird-watching and nature study are encouraged. For a solitary walk, an educational hike or just relaxation. GENERAL In 1971 Richard Wolfe donated 182 acres to the Town of Chenango for use as a public park. In 1981 the Youth Conservatin Corp built the first nature trail loop. In 1994 Boy Scout Troop 155 expanded the trail system. When you enter the park there is a kiosk, swing and flowers surrounding a small pond thanks to the efforts of many volunteers and contributions of Chenango Bridge Garden Club and Chenango Valley Lions Club. TRAILS Nature Trail:(0.6 miles) This is the first trail you encounter after you pass by the pond. It is a circular loop, fairly level, with good drainage and is used by naturalists and joggers alike. If you have the Trail Guide, walk clockwise to see the various stations. It is blazed with blue markers. Other Trails: The White Trail and red-blazed Rim Trail parallel each other for about 1/2 mile before reaching the blue-blazed Bluebird Trail, which makes a 0.7 mile long loop through a large meadow. The 0.3 mile red-blazed Connector Trail runs between the White and Rim Trails. The park's longest trail is the 0.9 mile blue-blazed Hill Trail, which starts at an old tote road heading uphill from the White Trail. After ascending, the trail turns sharp left and levels off before descending down to the Bluebird Trail.
This is a short hike with interesting features including a waterfall, overlook of the Town of Chenango and plenty of mushrooms! There are several trails which run through deciduous and coniferous patches of trees, an open field, along the top of a ridge, and the top of a steep bank that drops off to the creek below (my favorite). I often see hawks in the field and darting along the creek in the woods. Deer are common as well. This fantastic park is the jewel of the Town of Chenango in my opinion.
This area is pretty with good ups and downs. Can be very muddy after the smallest amount of rain. Good parking.
can someone please tell me what trail the waterfallsare on? I was on the blue trail, not to far in because it started getting dark. wanted to check the falls out with my family.
Trails were nice and marked moderately well. I did get confused at the end of the white trail but got turned back around and it was all good after that. Weather was beautiful so trails were dry. I do suggest a good bug spray thought.
Nice easy walk for the whole family.
The trail was incredibly muddy on the white trail. The split off from the bluebird trail to red trail seemed to end or wasn't maintained. We might have been on an old trail. The foot bridge was missed over and falling apart on the one trail, on others the wooden bridges were cockeyed or non existent. The waterfall was nice, but it was a steep decline down with no stairs or what not. The observation deck wasn't on the trail map, nor were the falls. Many trees were across the trail. The gazebo could be cute but even it had Moss growing throughout the roof. Picnic tables gave you a nice view of the guard rail and parking lot. Although the kids did enjoy collecting salamanders.
It was amazing. I had to hike it (will be there again) for a geology lab for SUNY Broome! I have been looking for a place to go hiking and this has definitely been one of the better options!
I love this trail, great for my young nephew and my small dog. If you go out of your way some you can make it a bit harder. The walk down the water way is absolutely gorgeous and still simple enough for a child.
Walk this easy trail with my 10y/o regularly. Gets pretty squishy in the spring but summer and fall are beautiful.
