Explore the most popular birding trails near Victor with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Provides great access to Boughton Park in Bloomfied-- the park has a parking area only for those with permits (residents of West and East Bloomfield and Victor) so the rest of us can hike in using this AllTrails route. A few pointers: as others have noted, drive past The Apple Farm, turn right on Cherry Street and park on the asphalt just before the little farm house. Walk down the road, past the farm house and along the field. You will see a red marked trail to the right but do not take that! Continue to the end of the field and you will see a red marked trail to the left that takes you around the field and up into the woods. Stay red all the way until the red trail runs straight ahead into a blue marked trail (and red turns left). Stay straight onto the blue all the way to the ponds. It's about a mile and a half to the ponds from your car.
As we returned to our car today, we met up with I think a gelded steer (?) on the path- I am not very cattle-savvy. Very friendly but scared of my dog who began barking and the bovine galloped back to the herd.
Anyway, this is about the best hike in the area! Enjoy!

This place might be in my top 5 for local hikes. It was beautiful! It could also be because it was the first nice day we had in a looooong time but it was still pretty even if it was really muddy. The other reviews are accurate - the trail isn't always easy to see. But if you use the app to track your trail it is fine, or if you just keep the pond to one side of you, you will be good. There is another starting point off Stirnie Road we passed - a bigger parking lot so that could be an option. It would also cut the hike down as getting to the pond and back was half the hike. Great area if you want to picnic, too. I highly recommend it.
** The way in AllTrails is closed May 1-31 for Turkey Season - and likely Oct threw Dec for other hunting seasons **

Does this park require permits?

We parked on the side of the road and made our way up the dead end road past the farm house.

There was a clear snowmobile trail to the right that we passed and continued down the road.

Beautiful area with plenty to see. In summer it must be lovely!

There is no indication that your in the right spot for the trail. Lucky for me there was someone already there who knew where to go. Your going to walk past the farm house and continue down the dirt road and the trail is off that. Unfortunately I was looking for a nice fall hike, but the trail had signs that it was closed due to hunting. I would suggest looking the trails up on a different source than this app cause they do not indicate weather or not the trails are open.I was not going to risk hiking it in hunting season, so I cannot fully review the trail.

Beautiful Park! Great blend of tree covered and open areas, well maintained, little muddy in a few spots but manageable. Loved that it didn't feel like you were on a trail in some spots with the leaves down. And my dog loved exploring the area too!

Easy in/out, went when the pond had flipped and the whole area smelled like sulfur. Yuck.

Nice area to hike. There are many trails crossing this trail . However it is not well marked as to where each goes. With better signs would rate higher. It is easy to follow a trail if you know what color path you want.

It starts near a farm but you're at the right place! Didn't finish but got up to the apple farm and was certainly even nice up to there.

Beautiful scenery. Easy to walk. Easy trails. Much to see. Access to water. Pet friendly. Not too long. Amazing overall. Highly recommend. Definitely would go back!!

Beautiful, peaceful area. Unfortunately was only able to hike about half of what I wanted to do to spraying for bugs/weeds earlier in the day. Was a little buggy in the trees, but tolerable, a few offshoots from the main trail were fun to explore, worth checking out, also get to learn a little history along the way

I really enjoyed this trail. It's well marked and offers some very diverse scenery. There are several side trails that I didn't check out because it was my first time there. I did go off the trail to explore a creek. There are several signs providing the history of the Seneca. I was there for about two hours mid-morning on a weekday and only came across one other person. I'm definitely going back again.

Very nice hike. Trails were clean of debris, but as usual for spring hiking, pretty wet in areas. I like the mix of wooded trails, open meadowlands and streams.

Was thrown off at first because trail starts near a farm house. Once I knew I was in the right spot it was a great hike. Great trail.

I LOVED THIS TRAIL! it was well marked and was a perfect 2 hour hike. I took the purple/red trail that led to an unmarked but well trafficked trail so it made a loop back.

Very well kept with very nice people who work there. Was a beautiful place and I am definitely going back!

A well maintained local park with several trail options. We tried to walk the outer perimeter; about 2 miles. The park is about 50% wooded and 50% meadow, with a small stream running along the north side. Port-O-Pots are located at the two main entrances to the park.

Red trail contains well kept paths beautiful fields in fall with many wild native flowers. Roads are some what visible but the fields in fall make it worth it.Trails are marked well. Backs up to the blue eagle trail which is heavily wooded moderately inclined and connects to fort hill - open area with decent view. Ran into one tiny stream on the red trail. Dog friendly :)

It was a wonderful exploration without a map we eventually ended back to the beginning! We enjoyed all the aspects of nature and the little history plaques along the way :)

Went a couple days ago, snow pack was good. Very easy, nothing all to special to see but a great place to bring my dog for a walk. Just make sure in the winter you have a dog who knows a command not to go in the creek.
