We’ll look for warblers and other spring migrants along this level, rails-to-trails, pathway in Ontario County. This well-maintained trail is an established favorite for wildlife viewing and scenic views. Wear comfortable walking shoes. At times, the weather can be fickle, but we’ve seen better warblers in the snow on this trip than many trips get on sunny days. Dress accordingly! This is a level grade, easy to walk, linear trail, 1.6 miles in and 1.6 miles back out. No restrooms available. Meet at 8:00 a.m. at the trailhead. It is on the south side of Rt. 96 just east of the Rt. 488 intersection. For anyone who wishes to use a bathroom before heading out on the trail, there is a Byrne Dairy on the corner of Rts. 96 & 488.
