Wesley Hill Nature Preserve

Executive Director Andy Zepp will lead participants on a 3.8-mile hike through the 390-acre Wesley Hill Nature Preserve, home to the immense Briggs Gully, one of the largest gorges in our region. Diverse stands of mature forest — including about 10 acres of old-growth — a wide array of wildflowers, and sweeping views of the hills surrounding Honeoye Lake's southern end make this preserve truly special. Andy will discuss the history of the preserve and the Land Trust's role in acquiring it, as well as its flora and fauna. The hike will last approximately two hours and will be followed by a barbecue celebration of Wesley Hill's 20th anniversary.

Meet at the Wesley Road entrance! From Honeoye, take Rt. 20A east to East Lake Road. Follow East Lake Rd. south for a short distance and then turn left on County Rd. 33. Continue a short distance and turn right on Pinewood Hill Rd. Follow Pinewood Hill, then Gulick Road south for approx. 2.5 miles. Turn right on Wesley Road and follow approx. 1 mile to the parking area on the left.
