Hollyhock Hollow Sanctuary

Hollyhock Hollow Sanctuary was donated by Dr. Robert Rienow to be the headquarters of Audobon International (not the Society) and a bird and wildlife sanctuary. Set on 140 acres, there are a number of interconnected hiking trails open to the public allowing you to customize your outing. Tails are generally flat and well marked. Much of the property is a mixed deciduous forest but there is a trail along the Onesquethaw Creek and the area around the sanctuary building is open with a number of flower gardens.

9/20/2012 - All trails have been cleared. A new trail linking Hemlock and the creek trail has been cut allowing for a big loop around the property.
