Woodcrest Trail


This unique 8-acre geological, natural and historic trail spans a chronological time frame from 100's of million years to the late 1800s. At the beginning of the trail on the left is a major rock outcropping that speaks of volcanoes millions of years ago. In the spring the beautiful pond on the right is full of water lilies and the sound of croaking Bull-Frogs. Just down on the right of the trail there is a huge Sycamore tree leaning towards the sun. During the period when the area around this property was called New Castle Corners, the pond was used for harvesting ice blocks. Additionally, a first post office and general store were located on Route 172 just east of Route 117. There are five benches along the trail for meditative 'Forest Bathing' and relaxation. 


In addition to Bull-Frog serenades, Downy Woodpeckers, Blue Jays, Redwing Blackbirds, Mourning Dove, Chickadee, and many other birds may be heard along this moderately easy, peaceful trail. 


Where to Park

Take Route 172 East. Make a left-hand turn at the first traffic light onto Woodcrest Lane. Make a first right onto Glassbury Court, drive for a little bit and on your right will be the beginning of the trail marked with a white trail marker. There's also a bench at the beginning of the trail.
