The West Hill Preserve is one of six sites owned by The Nature Conservancy in the western Finger Lakes area. We will hike for about two hours, choosing from the marked and unmarked trails found in the preserve. We will see various levels of ecological succession since farming ceased at different times across this parcel. Homesteading artifacts fascinate me, and there is at least one old foundation and assorted abandoned farm equipment hiding in the old fields if you keep a look out.
The trails in this section aren’t steep, but there is some hill climbing, and there may be some soggy ground in the low areas. Dress for the weather and bring water and a snack if you wish. RSVP for directions.
This free event is open to members and non-members of Women Outdoors. Non-members are invited to join us on two events to see what you think. The third time's a charm - we'll ask you to join Women Outdoors at that point. You can join now by clicking on Join Us.
RSVP for directions.
