Winnakee Nature Preserve Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Discover a hidden, deliciously green wild space just beyond the strip malls. Franklin Roosevelt was not the only landowner in Hyde Park who appreciated the value of sustainable forestry and eternal green spaces.

Just down the road from the Roosevelt Farm and Forest, Franklin’s friend and neighbor, Colonel Archibald Rogers, recognized young Roosevelt’s interest in forest management and served as a mentor to the boy, cultivating his enthusiasm for trees until it became a lifelong passion."
