Binghamton Off The Beaten Path: 3 reviews and 3 photos
If you are looking for a nice walk, a place to take the kids to learn about nature, or want a place to have a picnic, try Finch Hollow. There is a small Natural History center/museum with people who will answer questions. THere is also an easy walk of about 1 mile which takes you through a field, over a stream, around a pond, through a pine forest, and over a dam. There is a bit of a hill to start and finish, but other than that, it's fairly flat. There are a couple small muddy areas (plan on mud even a few days after a heavy rain!) and one place where you have to get across the a stream - they do have rocks strategically placed, but 1 was missing (or they weren't done??) so it got a little wet! THe trails are open during daylight hours; the museum is open set hours so call before you go. Dogs are allowed in the park as long as they are leashed. Picnic tables are by the main building.
Finch Hollow is at 1394 Oakdale Road, about 2 miles from the Oakdale Mall. 729-4231.
