Join us as we explore this gem of a town park!
Corbett's Glen is a 2.1 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail that features a waterfall, boardwalk area, a deck viewing area, as well as a tunnel. In addition to the three cascades, the southern part of the park carries hikers around rolling glacial moraines left from the last ice age, wetland marsh that is as saturated with wildlife as it is with water, and a wind-swept meadow in the heart of it all. Being an oasis of green within an urban jungle, migrating birds often use the valley as a stop-over on their long journeys. Over 100 species have been spotted here. The northern end is perfect for an afternoon shaded walk through deciduous and mixed woodland.
The trails here, rated as moderate, are well-maintained and spotting local wildlife is unavoidable. it is mostly flat except for one gully where it is useful to have a hiking stick.
We will meet at the eight-car parking lot located off of Penfield Road, across from Forest Hill Road, at the north end of the park. We will meander to the south end, returning to the parking lot.

Good walking or hiking shoes, bug spray/sun screen, water, hat. Optional: hiking poles.
*Important to Know* Restrooms and garbage receptacles are not available in this park. Leashed pets allowed . Pet waste must be carried out.
