The Sensitivity Trail a Spencer Crest Nature Center in Corning, New York is an easy 0.2-mile loop trail that features fossil rocks and art exhibits in the middle of the woods.

This short boardwalk trail allows hikers to reach other trails at Spencer Crest Nature Center since this is one of the first trails that leads into the park. Following this trail counter clockwise, hikers will first pass a short spur trail that leads to some rocks with fossilized plants. Continuing onward, the trail hits two trail junctions at the southern end of the loop - one with the Laurel Lane Trail and the High Meadow Trail.

To finish the loop, continue hiking along the boardwalk until reaching the trailhead.
