Reynolds Forest

Located in Sidney, Reynolds Forest is a short hike that starts by following along Goff Brook providing breath-taking views of the raging stream and waterfalls. The trail then continues to weave through a mature forest and provides views of an open field and old cellar hole.

Dirt/Forest Floor, Rock/Ledge, Grass


Reynolds Forest is a conserved area of land that is home to two trails. The first trail accessible from the trailhead is the Streamside Trail. The trail is a quick 0.15 mile trek that follows along Goff Stream. At the end, hikers are rewarded with views of the stream's coursing waterfalls. The rocks along the stream bank are an ideal spot for a picnic. From there hikers have the option of looping back through the forest to the trailhead or heading onward to the Old Farm Loop. The loop is 0.36 miles and weaves through the thick of Reynolds Forest. On the southern edge of the trail an open field can be observed, and as the trail loops back a former cellar foundation can be found. The trail and stream provide visitors with sublime birding opportunities as well as impressive wildflowers and floodplain species along the stream.

Other Information

No motor vehicles are allowed on the trails. Beware of flooding in the early spring.

Trail Tips

Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces
Stick to established trails and campsites. If there's no trail, try to walk on rock, gravel, or snow and spread out so that your group doesn't create a trail.
