Enjoy a one-mile walk along the gently rolling trails of the Schiffendecker Farm Preserve. Located behind the busy commercial area in Glenmont, this preserve features quiet woods and babbling streams for the perfect nature break. Settle for a brief respite under the hemlocks and pine by tributaries of the Normans Kill and glimpse views of forested glen and dale. Plant lovers can find maidenhair fern here.
The Schiffendecker Farm Preserve was donated to MHLC in2007. The 40-acre property was protected to mitigate the wetland disturbances from development of the adjoining lands. Once a historic Glenmont Farm, the property was sold and subdivided for development. Protection of this acreage is all that remains from the original farmlands.
