Project Description

Size: 43 acres
Location: Town of Van Buren
Classification: Emerald
Trails: Yes

Located along Whiskey Hollow Road, a hard packed gravel and unpaved road that runs between West Dead Creek Road and Perry Road. This property boasts large stands of mature woods. The south facing slopes contain trees found normally much further south. These deep woods provide nesting sites for many bird species and the National Audubon Society has named the Hollow an Important Bird Area.

To get to Whiskey Hollow from NY 690 North, exit for NY 31 West, Jordan. This is the first of the two Baldwinsville exits and is south of the Seneca River. At the bottom of the ramp, turn left onto NY 31 West which is also Downer Street. From NY 690 South, exit for NY 31 West, Jordan. This is the second of the two Baldwinsville exits and is south of the Seneca River. At the bottom of the ramp, turn right onto NY 31 West which is also Downer Street. Continue straight on NY 31 passing East Dead Creek Road on your left and straight through the flashing traffic signal where NY 31 turns south. Cross over the long bridge. After the town highway garage at the end of the bridge on your right, the road curves left and becomes West Dead Creek Road. Stay on West Dead Creek Road going south. After you pass Conners Road, continue for almost one mile; the next road is Whiskey Hollow Road on your right. Look for a log cabin house on your right just before Whiskey Hollow Road; it sort of sneaks up on you! Turn right onto Whiskey Hollow Road which becomes a hard packed gravel road. The property is posted with CNYLT signs and straddles the road although not for the entire length. You may park along the edge and walk in where the signs are. The spring where people fill up their water jugs is on the CNYLT property. The left or south side of the road is normally very wet with the creek and seeps. The right or north side is much drier with ridges and valleys. The trails are not formally marked but they are visible.
