Trail System

If you like the great outdoors, you’ll love our hiking trails. The Seneca Meadows Wetlands Preserve features over seven miles of breath taking trails through forested land, lush prairies and along serene ponds. Wildlife can be seen in abundance on these paths, and lookout stations help you catch a better view of their activity and antics.
