Reinstein Woods Interpretive Trails

There are about three and a half miles of gentle trails for you explore 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 most trails.

The Education Center is a LEED Silver certified building. You can explore the building on your own by taking a cell phone tour and reading signs throughout the building, then take home information on how to make your own home more environmentally friendly.  You can learn about construction of the building here.


Most of the trails at Reinstein Woods are compacted gravel/dirt roads; a few trails are covered with wood chips. Persons in wheelchairs and strollers frequently participate in tours. We also feature an accessible boardwalk leading to an overlook of the Lily Pond.

The Education Center has a scooter available for people with limited mobility to use in exploring many of the trails. Call the Education Center for details: (716) 683-5959.
