Went for a post Christmas wander in the woods. Well marked trails, ample parking and signage. Hilly with good views, easy walking.

This is a lovely spot off of Route 6 in Woodbury. You can have a picnic, take the dog, enjoy some trails and just be outside in clean air

Flanders is also a land trust with extensive nature sanctuaries for nature and wildlife observation and hiking. Top notch educational programs for youth and adults. Famous for their maple sugaring operation and demonstrations. Disclaimer: I co-chair their Photography Club and lead nature hikes.

Great summer camp that I used to attend when I was a kid. All of the volunteers worked hard and cared about the camp and teaching kids about the environment and different animal species. Overall, great experience and also very educational.

My children go to Flander's for summer camp and love it. Every year they ask for "farm camp." They explore all areas of the Nature center: trails, ponds, barn, etc. The counselors are fantastic as well! Flander's offers more than camp. There are different sites...More

My boyfriend and I were pretty disappointed by this trail. We spend most weekends during the summer hiking or taking nature walks and have traveled all over the state. However, we were pretty disappointed by Flander's. There was not too much to see and the...More

My family and I enjoy hiking the trails at the nature preserve. There are some nice hikes through the woods and good look-outs over ponds. The maple sugar shack is fantastic, with tours during the season (check the website, but usually Feb-Mar). They collect their...More

Big fan of this place for a trail walk or hike any time of the year. The bog walk, as I refer to it, is less pleasant during the hot and sticky months, but the rest of the trails are beautiful with such peaceful surroundings....More
