Length: 1.4 mi • Est. 36 m
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! The trail is located around the perimeter of the meadows and is a low-impact trail for jogging, hiking, and cross-country skiing. 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. 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. The trail surrounds one of the grasslands conserved for nesting birds, so please, keep your dog on a leash until after the nesting season is complete!Show more
