Join our Central New York Chapter for a Valentine’s Day hike. The Nelson Swamp Unique Area parking lot is on Constine Bridge Road, ½ mile south of the intersection of Ballina Road and Stone Quarry Road, across the road from the Transfer Station (which is 3422 Constine Bridge Road). The trail is mostly flat, following the former path of the Syracuse & Chenango Valley Railroad, crossing over Chittenango Creek and near a beaver dam. It is mostly flat, but there is a short steep segment crossing a berm before reaching our turnaround point at Hardscrabble Road. Qualifies for NCTA Hike 100 Challenge.

Distance: 3 miles roundtrip
