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.

Great hike... a hidden gem for being so close to town. Gorgeous ravine and nice trail.

great hike. bear left at the start to see the water falls below you. looking at the park map at the entrance, I do not recommend doing the large blue loop. it is not maintained and is more like crawling through animal paths. otherwise enjoyable. for any geocachers, check out the cache of the white trail.

A nice and easy hike, with beautiful wildflowers and a lovely waterfall. The farther loop trail (which cuts toward the east after crossing the creek) was extremely wet and to be avoided till summer, but the trail on the south side was mostly dry. Climbing down to the waterfall is not too difficult and very rewarding. Young children would have a field day exploring and piling up rocks as others have done.
