Not a ton of scenery for most of the trail but did see some turkeys and there was a nice little creek that was very pretty and my dogs enjoyed swimming in

Relaxing and easy going.

There was deer like every turn I took! Loved it!

A nice undeveloped area of Lackawanna. Lots of different things to see and explore, trails, tracks, trestles, ponds and creek. Spent many many hours there as a child.

Small local Trail. Not really for hiking, more or less to just enjoy scenery and a waterfall.

Some friends and I hiked this trail in late fall of 2016 and it was beautiful. The animals are just familiar enough with humans to let you get close enough to see them without startling. I took some amazing pictures here. It is a great place to go exploring and you will always find something new.

Really cute trail with nice views! not a strenuous walk/hike by any means, perfect for a casual afternoon for any population. Lots of people doing photo shoots there!

Nice little walk and did a little geocaching as well. It's very easy and maintained. With it being so dry this year there wasn't much water around, and it was a 90* day so it was very hot. A nice cool fall day would have better. For us it was fairly close and a good way to get back to nature for a little refreshment of the soul.

Beautiful waterfall for taking scenic pictures and enjoy a relaxing day. It was a bit short for hiking.

My two little boys and I have gone for a short walk a couple of times, each time discovering something new and amazing. Along the trail we've seen many different birds. we've crossed paths with deer and rabbits. A great place to go enjoy nature under the shade of trees, along creeks.

Nice little city oasis. Good birding and other wildlife. Overall a good way to get into nature without a long drive (if you live in Buffalo).

Easy trail , fun for a day of just casual walking and relaxing . My dog loved it the water is very accessible in many areas.

Rutted from off road bikes and vehicles. Definitely need hiking boots with ankle support, very gravely and not marked at all. I was disappointed .

What a wonderful hidden treasure! My fiance and I spent the day walking all around this park. Tons of birds, I've seen more bird species here than I've seen anywhere else. We saw some deer too, and turtles! There is a lot to see in this park. Woods, marsh areas with walkways, a big open field that part of the trail goes through. Little creeks everywhere. The hiking is very easy. I would have never known somewhere so close to the city to be as "woodsy" and abundant in wildlife as this place is. Totally worth a visit, we will be going back!

I frequent this trail often. It's a 10 min drive from where I live so I like to come here a few times a year. I have taken this trail in the summer and in the winter. The summer is a great time to see all different types of birds and deer hiding in the trees. My favorite though would have to be coming here in the dead of winter. It's cold but it's so peaceful and pretty. Just bundle up and bring hand warmers, it's a short enough trail that you can just run back to the car if you can't handle the cold.

Really easy, interesting trail. You can go out for a short walk or do the whole trail for more of a challenge. If you see chickadees, don't feed them, but hold your hand up and see what happens.
