Getting There

This park consists of 182 acres of hiking and nature trails, and it is a regional 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. This area is best used for solitary walks, educational hikes and relaxation. This area is subject to closure based on extreme weather which may impact paths. GENERAL In 1971 Richard Wolfe donated 182 acres to the Town of Chenango for use as a public park. In 1981 the Youth Conservation Corp built the first nature trail loop. In 1994 Boy Scout Troop 155 expanded the trail system. When entering 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. Nature Trail: (0.6 miles) This is the first trail users encounter after passing by the pond. It is a circular loop, fairly level, with good drainage and is used by naturalists and joggers alike. If users have the Trail Guide, walk clockwise to see the various stations. This trail is blazed with blue markers. Other Trails: The White Trail and red-blazed Rim Trail parallel each other for about one half mile before reaching the blue-blazed Bluebird Trail, which makes a 0.7 mile 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.

Parking along the road next to the opening of the park. Portable john available near the park entrance.

The bridge at the very beginning is washed out! Very sketchy crossing there, I don’t recommend it.

Nice to be out in the woods. It had rained in the morning, so some parts were fairly muddy. Highway sounds were always audible, but not overwhelming.

Very nice wander through the woods. Well marked trails are important as without them it would have been difficult to determine nowhere the trails were a few times. Gully views along the red rim trail are quite nice.

Overgrown. Muddy. Buggy. But overall glad it’s here. Better than walking the JC streets. Waterfall is dry. Overgrown part is the worst. WEAR LONG PANTS

Extremely overgrown on bluebird and hill trails, from bluebird (blue) onto hill (red) you could barely tell where the path was-ended up missing it twice and having to turn around. Overall every trail is poorly marked.

Lots of inclines. Better incline within the woods vs power poles. If you want per nature sounds this won't happen here. Hear 81 for a majority of the trail. But it is a beautiful hike regardless. Lots of roots so bring good hiking shoes.

the back end of the loop is fairly overgrown but only for a brief length. some of the trail is quite slanted to the side, so hikers with less stable footing may struggle.

Some parts were not well maintained. We had to walk through tall grass.

not much to see, didn't go all the way out though. its difficult to tell where the trails are at times and there are A LOT of tree roots on the trails. overall not a bad hike, but certainly not my favorite trail in the area.

Love Wolfe Park! We spend a lot of time there in the summers stewarding the creek and picking up trash. For those who haven't been able to easily access the waterfall, take a left at the end of the bridge going into the park and follow that trail - it's a much easier walk down.
