12:30 PM—3:30 PM


Hinchcliff Family Preserve


Please RSVP with Nature Preserve Manager Jason Gorman by emailing or calling 607-275-9487.


Since being formally opened to the public in 2015, the Hinchcliff Family Preserve has been one of the Land Trust’s most popular preserves! Your help is needed is to create a hiking trail from Covey Road to the Central New York Land Trust’s Ripley Hill Preserve via a narrow strip of land owned by FLLT.  We will meet in the Hinchcliff Preserve main parking area at the end of Covey Road and carpool to the Ripley Hill Preserve.

All tools and work gloves will be provided. Please wear sturdy shoes or hiking boots and bring your own lunch or a snack.  Drinking water will be provided.


The Hinchcliff Family Preserve lies at the end of Covey Road off Route 41 in Spafford, Onondaga County. From Skaneateles, take Route 41 south for 14 miles, then turn right onto Covey Road. The preserve’s parking lot lies at the end of the road. From Ithaca or Cortland, take Route 13 north to Route 281 north, then take a left onto Route 41 north in Homer. Stay on Route 41 north for about 11 miles, then take a left onto Covey Road to the preserve.
