We have been to the Bozen Kill Preserve in the past, and we recently decided to revisit it. Our hike was pleasant, and it was nice to explore the various scenery and the Bozen Kill itself.
Finding the preserve is easy, and we use Google Maps to get there.
The trail head parking lot is small and can accommodate about 6-7 cars, so plan accordingly, as there are other preserves nearby (such as Wolf Creek Falls and Limestone Rise Preserve). This photo is from when we left, but when we arrived, there were 5 cars parked head in and we parked along the side.
This gives you an idea of the trails; however, you can find a high quality map and more information here.
There is a kiosk with information, a map, even a trail register.
The trail starts off in a field, quickly heading into a forested area.
We started on the white trail. It was nice to see that there were rocks in most areas that were prone to mud.
All of the trails are well-marked, with color-coded trail markers as well as signs.
We saw so many beautiful wildflowers along the way.
At the end of the white trail, we explored the Bozen Kill.
It was fun to search for aquatic critters, and there were several wildflowers here.
We continued on the red trail, which also ends at the Bozen Kill.
There is a marker that notes the end of the trail. We also explored the stream here before heading back.
We really enjoyed exploring the Bozen Kill Preserve. While I usually prefer a loop trail, it was nice to be able to explore the Bozen Kill stream, and also to see different types of landscapes (field, wetlands, forest, etc).

The flowers are beautiful! I love how active you all are. Those are great memories that I’m sure you’ll cherish forever 🙂
The wildflowers are gorgeous! We also have a lot of trails around here and I’ve heard they’re fun to explore too.
Those purple wild flowers look so pretty!! What a beautiful hike
This would be such a great place to see. I love getting out in nature.
It looks like a gorgeous place to hike! I would have expected it to be crowded, but from the photos, it looks like it was not. My kids always loved finding crayfish.
What a beautiful forest. I love your nature photos, especially the tiny snail on the blade of grass. Cool that you found a crayfish. We have them in the stream in our yard, but we only very rarely see them.
I do love to see wildflowers along the way when I’m out and about. I prefer those to any picked ones that are sent to me as a gift because they stay alive. 🙂
My whole family loves nature and we love to discover new place where we can enjoy the nature, smell it and to have some beautiful time all together!
Definitely looks like a nice place for a hike!
I looks so peaceful out there, we are nature lovers ourselves. I like how active your family is. Wonderful pictures!

Bozen Kill is a great place. We go there as often as we can to get out and enjoy nature. Obviously, that hasn’t been much lately. We miss it.
This looks like a fun trail to hike with gorgeous scenery.
There is nothing more beautiful than walking in nature, relaxing and breathing good air!
This is beautiful and looks like a perfect place to go for a walk, to have a relaxing moment with your family and a time to reconnect to the nature.
Such beautiful, fresh air! You’ve captured the vibe of the site really well.
So beautiful! It looks like an enchanted forest. I lived in upstate New York for a few years but didn’t even know about this place.
What a lovely and relaxing place for a walk. This all looks really beautiful, especially all the photos of all the flowers and trees.
This kind of day just always feels so nice for your soul. I love a quiet, nice day in the great outdoors. Being outside all day makes for a good night’s sleep as well!
The trail looks amazing! This is the first time I heard about Bozen Kill Preserve! I hope to see it soon.
Looks like you had a lovely hike for sure. any thing that is in the outdoors is a win win for me x

This is so nice! A fun place to explore. And I’m wondering if this is the same Blue Trail that is in the area where we grew up that goes through several states.
This looks like a great place to hike. I am upstate but still a couple of hours from here. We definitely need to visit next year.
Out enjoying nature is definitely favorite place to be, it’s such a refreshing experience to me! This is such a beautiful place, I would definitely love to visit.
