Project Description

Size: 19 acres
Location: Town of Onondaga
Classification: Emerald
Trails: Yes

This preserve was donated to CNYLT in 1982 by Mary Ormsby Bigsby in memory of her son, Gerald William Bigsby. The preserve’s main feature is the drumlin that dominates the property and provides a panoramic view of Syracuse. The property hosts a variety of animals and plants including hundreds of conifers planted by the Bigsby family. Trails are well maintained. Access is via the parking lot of the Taunton Memorial United Presbyterian Church at 4326 Fay Road. From the back of the parking lot, look for an opening in the trees at the base of the drumlin; that’s where the trail begins.
