Description

Oak Hill is aptly named, forested with hemlocks, oaks, cherries, hawthorns and maples.

What Makes It Great:

This is one of the more beautiful views in the autumn. A well-timed visit in October will give viewers a palate of orange, red, rust and maize that will blow minds. Meadowedge and Sylvan Ponds are likely to stop you in your tracks, if only to watch the flitting waterfowl buzz in and out.

Who is Going to Love It:

Hikers, cross-country skiers and perhaps a trail runner or two who can’t get enough of the autumn leaves. Bring your camera to capture some of the tree-lined vistas. And don’t forget your lunch: There’s a nice picnic area there that can be accessed from these trails. One more quick head’s up: in the summer and early fall, this trail can get buggy, so make sure you carry plenty of insect repellent, or lather up before you arrive.

Corridors of towering trees are the best part about these trails.
