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.

Hikers can find parking at the coordinates provided. The parking lot is large enough to fit a few dozen vehicles.

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

Blaze Colors

Before you leave...

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.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 👍 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
