Vosberg and Drumm Roads

This Sunday, Springwater Trails will return to Webster for hikes at the Gosnell Big Woods Preserve. Naturalists will follow trails within Gosnell Big Woods. Gosnell is a mix of flat, around Big Field and short hills. The Climbers will include both trails in Gosnell Big Woods and in the neighboring Whiting Road Nature Preserve.  Whiting is hilly.

The meeting point will be at the Parking area close to the intersection of Vosberg & Drumm Roads.

There doesn’t appear to be a picnic area at the Preserve, but hikers comfortable with supporting restaurants will meet at Flaherty’s Three Flags Inn for an after hike social.


From Springwater: Take NY 15A north to get on I-390 N (either in Avon off of 20W, or in Henrietta). In Rochester, keep right at exit 15 to get on I-590. Stay on I-590 for 4.5 miles to Exit 10, 104E to Webster. Take the Bay Rd exit and turn right onto Bay Rd headed north. In 1.3 miles turn right onto Klem Rd. In 0.7 miles turn left onto Drumm Rd. In 0.7 miles, as the road turns left to become Vosberg Rd, the parking lot is on the right.

Directions to Flaherty’s: Return on Drumm Rd and Klem Rd to Bay Rd. Turn left on Bay Rd, and in 2.7 miles, Flaherty’s will be on the left (just before a light).. It may be easier to turn left at the Kidd Castle Way light and then two quick lefts.
