Discover Crooked Creek Preserve Macsherry Trail

The Macsherry Trail on the Crooked Creek Preserve provides a peaceful meandering through the woods of one of the most significant wetland habitats on the St. Lawrence.
2.5 miles, Network


Roughly three miles long, the Macsherry Trails takes outdoor enthusiasts to a trailhead off of Indian Point Road in Hammond. On the hike, you will pass beaver ponds and meander through woods in one of the most significant wetlands on the St. Lawrence River. The trail leads to the Crooked Creek, providing a fantastic view of Chippewa Bay at the "Old Boyscout Camp", before circling back to the trailhead.

Other Information

The history of the Crooked Creek Preserve is quite intriguing. Once part of the Day Farm, the Preserve was acquired by the Land Trust in 1998 with the help of a grant from the Sweetwater Trust. In 2000, the children of Richard and Mary Macsherry donated the resources to build the Macsherry Trail, in honor of their parents' 50th wedding anniversary.
