Whiting Road Nature Preserve - Webster NY
Whiting Road Nature Preserve consists of approximately 240 acres of land purchased by the Town of Webster under the open space referendum. This property has a variety of ecosystems which make it a beautiful area to enjoy nature. The Whiting Road Nature Preserve Planning Committee was formed "To develop a master plan for the Whiting Road Nature Preserve which will facilitate public access for shared use of low-impact activities, while preserving the natural character of the property including bird, wildlife and fauna habitats." Their recommendations resulted in the Town Board approving that access to the property should be restricted to non-motorized, designated multi-use trails for bird watching, snow shoeing, cross-country skiing, dog walking on leash, trail walking, horse riding and biking and that the following non-appropriate activities should be prohibited: hunting, trapping, fires, motorized vehicles, camping and athletic fields.
Please visit the web site and defiantly check out the park as these guy’s really mean shared-use and GROC is a big fan of this park and its managers.
NOTE: Only Whiting Road is open to shared-use surrounding parks are not (Please obey the park rules Gosnell Big Woods is off limits to bicycles).
If you live in Webster you should really think about volunteering with this local group. FWT performs trail maintenance every first Saturday of the month from May through November.
