The nature trail begins at the nature center traveling through a mixed forest type around the shores of Bowman Lake.

This lovely red-blazed 1.3 mile loop hike travels through a varying hardwood forest along a sometimes rocky and wet path. This pleasant trail offers an opportunity to retreat amid a woodland along the shores of the clear Bowman Lake which is home to a variety of warmwater species and feeding ground for the visiting blue-heron. If hiking at dawn or dusk, you'll have a good chance of spying a white-tailed deer. The trail does not remain constant to the shore. It climbs and descends around the mildly hilly contours.

Directions: From Oxford, NY, Travel SR 220 northwest for approximately 8 miles. SR 997A travels into the park. After passing the ranger station, bear left at the fork weaving around to the parking area. The red-blazed trail begins at the nature center.
