This park is a gem right near the Outer Harbor in Buffalo. It has a few miles of many dirt/grass/unpaved walking trails through woods. It is easy hiking with good views of the outer harbor and old grain mill and Seneca One tower in the distance. You can easily socially distance here and enjoy nature and the outdoors. There is also a big pond for fishing in the park. There is an onsite parking lot as well.

We stopped here on the way home from Buffalo for a hike. We walked a bit, and realized that it would be a more interesting walk for us near Lake Erie, so we walked across the street to Buffalo Harbor State Park. There were a few people fishing on Lake Kristy, and it is a beautiful serene place. There are a number of trails, and I'm sure if we had more time we would have been able to enjoy the trails.

One of my favorite spots in Erie County for birding. Pros: Top spot for birding any time of year, but especially great during migration season. Depending on time of year, expect to see waterfowl, warblers, osprey, raptors, sparrows, herons. Nice bathrooms to use before/after heading onto the trails. They keep-up with the boardwalks maintenance, which have nice views over the marshland. Decent amount of trails that stretch around a pond, marshland, and even on busy weekends never seem too crowded. Negatives: Seems that the park is getting too overcrowded with deer. This year bucks have been bedding down right on the trails, which is a bit iffy trying to walk past during rut and they don't want to move, or start walking right at you. Numerous others have voiced concerns about the deer while walking the park as well. Parking lot could use some TLC. A couple parts of trails have been getting washed out in spring the last couple years, which isn't really the parks fault, but make sure to bring proper footwear. As a personal preference, I wish signage showed milage of each trail.

This is not what a nature preserve is. This place smells like chemicals, sounds like the thruway and looks like a dead body might float up at any minute. Kids walking the trails smoking weed, potholes in the parking lot to swallow up my van- turned heel and got my kids the hell out. Go to Chestnut Ridge, Reinstein, Delaware park- anywhere else is nicer!

THE birding hotspot of the Niagara Frontier. Always a pleasure to visit as I have many times. But early spring is my favorite time: the ponds are full of migrating waterfowl, the marshes resonating with the calls of rails and herons, and the woodlands full of land bird migrants. Center staff and volunteers have always been helpful.
