The Valley Trail 

Attention Hikers

The Interpretive Center is currently closed to the public ; however, our trails remain open every day from dawn to dusk.  The office is staffed from Mon-Fri from 8am – 4pm at (315) 673-1350. Please be sure to bring a face covering with you when you hike in case you find yourself in proximity to other hikers or program groups along the trails. Thank you for your cooperation and enjoy your hike!

If you’re interested in renting/signing out snowshoes, you will need to call the office in advance and be prepared to answer health screening questions upon arrival. Snowshoes are free to members; $5 for non-members.  Adult and kids sizes available.

The Trail System

Covering a distance of six miles, the Baltimore Woods site and system of nine trails is open to the public every day. Baltimore Woods site is owned by the Central New York Land Trust, a local land trust who contracts with Baltimore Woods Nature Center for management, utilization, and maintenance of the 182-acre property. Visitors may pick-up trail maps at the outdoor kiosks. We ask visitors to sign-in at the outdoor kiosks for two reasons: first, for safety, and second, so we can track how many visitors we have each year. This is especially important when it comes to securing funding for Baltimore Woods.
