Description   EN   

From http://www.dec.ny.gov/education/1837.html and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reinstein_Woods_Nature_Preserve

The Dr. Victor Reinstein Woods Nature Preserve - a unique 292-acre complex of forests, ponds, and wetlands surrounded by suburban development. Reinstein Woods offers a variety of opportunities to explore and learn about nature for families and people of all ages. In addition to free guided tours of the woods, DEC offers a variety of special programs each month, including snowshoe and ski adventures, walks on seasonal topics, and a fall nature festival. DEC invites you to visit this fascinating area!

Many species of wildlife native to western New York State, including white-tailed deer, beavers, waterfowl, red-tailed hawks, pileated woodpeckers and majestic great blue herons, live in or visit Reinstein Woods and thrive under its protection. Native wildflowers, ferns, and fungi are also found in "The Woods."

In 1932 the land was purchased by Dr. Victor Reinstein for a private nature sanctuary, and by 1960 he had planted 30,000 trees, constructed 19 ponds, marshes, and swamps.

The State of New York assumed control of this preserve in 1986, after its donation by the Reinstein Estate. The Dr. Victor Reinstein Woods Nature Preserve was officially dedicated on August 23, 1989.


The interpretive trails are open daily from sunrise to sunset.

Visitors are requested to sign in and out at the main trailhead kiosk and obey the posted rules. Interpretive pamphlets corresponding to the Lily Pond Loop, Footprint Trail, and Beech Tree Trail are available at each trailhead kiosk or inside the Environmental Education Center. Interpretive signs are found along the State Symbols Trail and History Trail. Benches are available on each trail.

2 11 August 2014 Mr.Yuck Didn't find it

This is a strange one, for sure. A DNF by an admin of the site (who went there twice), but yet a couple finds after that by non-regular users of the site. And of course the latest DNF by Borst. I didn't see anything, and I did note the DNF that said it was "14 meters out".

I really need a new GPS.  Had me 14m off for a while, finally expanded my search and got it.
