Schermerhorn Landing, New York Map

The trail is mostly a mown path, which then cuts into the woods to circle back. The raised walkways are nice, but the whole trail seems randomly defined, necessitating more raised paths than if it had been more thoughtfully planned. I didn't find the trail exceedingly picturesque, but it's fine if you just need a walk in the woods.

Super nice trail! Well marked with beautiful view of the wetlands and water. First half mile in for the short and long loop is grassy trail. Watch for snakes (gardeners) and frogs and wear high socks or long pants for ticks. Great lookout spots on the long loop and little inclines here and there. Little muddy in spots but nothing to navigate around. Would definitely visit this place again!

Wow, a beautiful trail with a great experience. The trail has a varying degree of inclines that make this trail that more interesting. This trail offers a short loop for a quick hike and a long loop for those wanting a little more. If you take the short loop you will miss the beautiful view at the main look out point! Protect yourself with bug spray because there are a lot of bugs. The return route has an area that is flooded out, skirt the flooded creek to left about 150 meters and it will take you to the original route (bridge). I skirted back right and got on the return route because I wanted to see the whole trail, but you can go back the way you came.

Pretty wet trail (in May) but had nice views of the marsh


Roughly three miles long, the Macsherry Trail begins at a trail head off of Indian Point Road in Hammond. Passing beaver ponds and meandering through woods, it leads to Crooked Creek itself with a wonderful view of Chippewa Bay at the "Old Boyscout Camp," before circling back to the trailhead.

Volunteers help to maintain the Macsherry Trail and steward the Preserve.
