The preserve was founded in 1999 by the generous donation of 90 acres by the children of three artists-John Weinrich, James Havens and Colburn Dugan- to the Finger Lakes Land Trust. Since that time the preserve has grown to over 359 acres. This property offers Briggs Gully, the original Weinrich cabin, breathtaking views of surrounding hills, a pond and extensive forest.
We will all meet at the Preserve parking lot, on the west side of Gulick Rd at 2:00 pm.
PLEASE ONLY use the Gulick Road parking area,(Wesley Road parking area is only available for Bow hunters and we won’t be there!). If you park on the road, please be careful parking and getting out of your car – watch for the edge of the road and for other traffic.
We will follow the red trail by the pond and around the preserve. At the green intersection, some hikers may want to take the green trail down to the gully and back up, depending on the condition of the trail (and of the hiker!). We will return to the red trail and then head back to parking lot. It is bow season, and we will be staying in the no hunting area. However, this is a good time to get out your orange jacket or hat for this season of hiking.
Optional after-hike social will be in the parking lot. Bring a beverage and dish to pass or a donation. Italian sausage with onions and peppers and rolls will be provided.
If weather is wet, please wear appropriate footwear and walking sticks and traction devices. The terrain is slopes and gullies.
