Forest murmurs: Hunters Creek Park

Walking at Hunters Creek Park yesterday.

In the woods at Hunters Creek Park #hunterscreekpark #wny #eastaurora #nature #hiking #trees

This park is "undeveloped", meaning it's a parcel of land in the wilderness and farm country southeast of Buffalo, with no amenities other than a fairly extensive series of trails, some of which are more heavily traveled than others. The access to the park consists of two gravel parking lots, and that's it. The park follows Hunters Creek (hence the name) as it cuts through an impressive ravine on its way to Buffalo Creek, which in turn becomes the Buffalo River, which empties into Lake Erie just upstream of where it empties itself into the Niagara River. All this water, therefore, is destined to plummet eventually over the great Niagara Falls themselves.

But anyway, Hunters Creek is a fascinating pleasure. The only people you encounter here are fellow hikers and mountain bikers, and occasionally a person camping overnight (I'm not sure this is permitted but I know it happens).

A few photos from yesterday's bit of hiking, which involved a side trip to the Creek itself because I'm always drawn to water.
