Good place to walk the dogs. Easy running as well as said in previous reviews. Not much on the scenic side of things. Quite area.

Great trail for running as it is a completely asphalt surface. It's in a beautiful area with plenty of sitting/reflection areas. Because of that, this trail is for any age group. Happy Trailing!

Opened in 2011, this 1.5 mile trail was made possible by the generosity of LoisJean and John MacFarlane, a grant from the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, and supporters like you!

This trail is open daily from dawn to dusk and visitors are welcome to enjoy this and the many other Land Trust trail systems in the region. In 2012, TILT started an Arbor Day tradition by planting a new row of trees along the trail, including a large oak in memory of TILT co-founder Michael Mead.

The MacFarlane trail also sports beautiful and informative signage, created by Bob McNamara of The Art of Wilderness, who provided illustrations for this brochure. These signs help explain the significance of the Zenda Farms Preserve, its habitats, wildlife and plant life. Now walkers have the opportunity to learn more about this property, as well as the ecology along the St. Lawrence River.
