The Brickyard Trail is a wide, flat, fine gravel, multi-use trail situated between Elmwood Avenue and Westfall Road in Brighton (across from the east end of Buckland Park). It contains woods at both ends and ponds and marsh in the middle, providing good bird habitat. We will walk the full length of the trail and back (1.7 miles) to look for migrating fall warblers, kinglets, sparrows, wrens, and finches. There might even be a late Green Heron hanging around.

Dress for the weather. Insect repellent may be needed for the wooded sections. No restrooms.

Meet at 7:30 a.m. at 1341 Westfall Road, the Buckland Park Headquarters (Buckland House), (about ¼ mi. east of the Buckland Park main entrance). RTS “South Clinton” bus stop is a few yards from trailhead on Westfall Rd.

Wheelchair friendly—please call leaders for accessibility questions.

Leaders: Jeanne and Tom Verhulst 585-362-0803
