Lansing Off The Beaten Path

    This forever-wild area is right on the migratory pathway for many of the smaller species of birds like warblers and vireos. Rarer birds like Cerulean Warblers, Scarlet Tanagers, Hooded Warblers, Baltimore Orioles, and Acadian Flycatchers have been viewed in this area.

    The preserve is a mix of field and woods with one section having the Salmon Creek extension running through it. The woods are cottonwood, sycamore, willow and locust, with a dense understory of shrubs and herbaceous vegetation. It makes for great feeding grounds for the birds on their migratory journeys.

    The "marked trail" (shown in light green) is a lightly trodden path through the hillside, beginning on Brooks Hill Road and coming out onto Salmon Creek Road. The "unmarked trail" changes every season as previous hikers and birders wend their way through the field and light woods west of Salmon Creek Road.

    During a good migration you can stand with you binoculars just off Salmon Creek Road and view the birds. At other times, you need to park along the side of the road and trek into the fields and woods for good viewing.

    to get there:
    Brooks Hill Road
    From Ithaca, take route 34 (East Shore Drive) north to 34B in South Lansing. Go west on route 34B then north onto Ludlowville Road. In Ludlowville, Ludlowville road turns east and you want to go north instead onto Salmon Creek Road. Go about 4 miles north on Salmon Creek Road to Brooks Hill Road. Park off the road.
