Field & Forest Trail

**The trail has been reopened, but now follows a different route 3/4 of a mile in from the Lewis-Wadhams Road.  Heavy logging made it necessary to close off the old path through the pasture.  Instead, the trail takes a 1/3 mile detour up a hill and skirts most of the damage done by the logging.**


Description: Head out on this 2.5-mile loop trail near Westport, New York. Generally considered an easy route, it takes an average of 1 h 12 min to complete. The Field and Forest trail has it all. It starts in open hardwoods, going through areas of ferny and grassy undergrowth and small rocky cliffs. A beautiful creek crossing brings walkers further into the woods, which soon open into rolling meadows filled with native flora and views of the mountains and foothills. This trail is perfect as a quick loop but also connects to several other trails that could be linked for a longer day out.
