Places To Run: Two Rivers State Park Recreation Area

Banzhoff Road Waverly, NY 14892

This long percolating park, still awaiting full development, adjoins Waverly Glen Park in Waverly NY. Combined, the two parks boast around 15 miles of mostly single track trail, rolling terrain, numerous stream crossings, and a breathtaking view or two. Its my go to spot for a daily run.

Places To Run: Wildwood Nature Reserve



"A combination of wetlands, open fields, a pond, a vernal pool, and some upland woods interspersed with trails, this 50 acre nature reserve is a great spot for hiking, birding, fishing, and just enjoying nature. Many trees along the trails are marked with large diamond-shaped numbered tags, which correspond to a description in our ‘tree trail’ brochure. This is a great way to learn about our local trees. Located east of Waverly, NY on Shepard Road in the Town of Barton, Wildwood can be accessed from Rt. 17C in NY or Cayuta Street in Milltown, PA. Shepard Road is 3.5 miles east of the junction of NY Rt. 17C and PA Rt. 220 in Waverly. Drive east on Rt. 17C and turn right on Shepard Rd. Wildwood is 0.5 miles south on Shepard Road. At the Wildwood sign, turn left to access the parking lot. From the intersection of PA Rt. 199 (N. Keystone Ave.) and Mohawk St. in Sayre, PA turn east onto Mohawk and drive 0.5 miles. Turn right onto Cayuta Street and drive 0.8 miles. Turn left onto Shepard Rd. Drive 1.3 miles and turn right at the Wildwood sign into the parking lot driveway."
