Sanders Preserve

Sanders Preserve is a 370 acre parcel owned by the Town of Glenville. Despite being trisected by roads and surrounded by houses it provides a remote experience. The trails are generally well maintained and marked and the intersections have signs that correspond with the map labels along with a copy of the map.

The parking area has a sign in kiosk which contains a quantity of printed maps and other kiosk with informational posters describing some of the flora and fauna that can be found in the preserve. Just behind the parking lot is a small picnic area.

The trail south to Point A is probably the best defined. It's gentlely sloped and reasonably wide without being obnoxiously so. Some of the trail comes close to a steep hillside leading down to the Washout Creek which provides some interesting vistas. There is a nice bench at point A

The trail East from point B and the Eastern part of the preserve, zone 3, don't apparently get as much traffic but is still well marked. There is a spot between B and C and another in the long loop between G and H where the trail has been re-routed and it's not entirely obvious that this is the case. Just be aware that if there is an orderly pile of branches that appear as if someone put them there on purpose, someone probably did and you should look around to see if there is another path.
