The Blue Trail at Two Rivers State Park in Waverly, New York is an easy 1-mile one-way trail that meanders through the woods passing through pine forests and adjacent to Dry Brook.
The trailhead begins along the yellow blazed trail, approximately less than 0.1-miles from the parking lot. There are no signs for this trail other than the small circle blue blazes nailed to the trees (as of January 2021).
The trail will slowly make its way downhill, but within the first 0.1-miles on the trail is a beautiful pine forest that was clearly planted by people. The trees may be 30+ years-old or older, but the scenery within this section of the hike is unlike other forests since the trees are standing in perfect rows.
The trail eventually starts to head downhill more - and during wet months, the trail can be similar to that of a shallow creek. Its best to bring waterproof footwear on this trail unless (likely) during mid-Summer.
Around half-way through the hike, the trail will come to a hairpin turn. Here, the trail will start to run adjacent to, but uphill from, Dry Brook - the creek that flows southward below. From the trail, the hiker can get a decent view of the creek, especially during months when no leaves are on the trees.
Finally, at mile 1 - or just shy of 1 mile - the hiker will reach the end of this trail. At the end of this trail, the hiker is now on the yellow blazed trail. From here, there are plenty of options to continue hiking. One option, to head back to parking, is following the Orange Trail.
Hikers will find a large parking lot at the coordinates provided. The lot is large enough to fit over a dozen vehicles.
Public restrooms can be found at the trailhead.
Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out by the hiker.
Mountain biking does appear to be permitted along this trail.
Note that this trail is rated easy heading downhill (the route direction in this GPS track) and should be considered easy to moderate heading uphill.
MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.
It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, and site maintainance . I simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.
