Merrick's Run

Dogs (leashed)

Merrick's Run Trail at Pfeiffer Nature Center's Lillibridge Property in Portville, New York is a difficult 0.3-mile one-way trail that is considered one of the most difficult trails at the park and features a beautiful woodland setting.

This trail connects the Emery Trail to the Hog's Back Trail, passing the White Oak Trail along the way. The trail's grade is mostly moderate until it passes the White Oak Trail, which is where the trail's grade becomes more steep. While this trail is not very short, the climb up to the Hog's Back Trail is not easy and should be taken slowly by hikers of most skill levels. If hiking down this trail from east to west, the trail is certainly easier; however, the steeper grade should still be taken seriously - hike slow and with caution to watch for loose rocks along the trail.

Hikers can find parking at the coordinates provided. The parking lot is large enough to fit about 8 large vehicles.

Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out by the hiker.

Blaze Color
This trail follows white blazes much like the rest of the trails at the Lillibridge Property, which can be confusing.
