Experiencing the winter woods in their dormant state is so different from the growing time of summer. Observe how high the surge from Hurricane Sandy came into the forest and view the dozens of trees toppled by the mega storm! Find and identify plants, seeds, birds, and the occasional evidence of other animal life on this serendipitous exploratory hike.
As you explore the fields and woods of the historic William Floyd Estate, you can also see remnants of the cultural landscape.
Dress for the weather and be prepared for a 2 - 3 mile roundtrip walk.More »
