As the name suggests, Wiessner Woods is almost entirely forested. There is a small portion of meadow visitors must pass through to get from the parking area to the trail head. The forest is a mature stand of hardwood and softwood trees including hemlock, spruce, white pine, maple, beech and birch. Several small streams traverse the property created periods of standing water during spring run-off. The property contains an extensive network of trails including a portion of the Catamount Trail which connects to trails on the adjacent Gameroff and Edson Hill properties.
Wiessner Woods is open to the public for pedestrian recreational use including hiking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and dog walking. In accordance with the wishes of the donor hunting, motorized and mechanized recreation is not permitted.
Muddy in Spring.
Simply park here: N44.49696 W72.72696

UpsideBeautiful wooded area, well marked paths DownsidePlease to those who have dogs with them, pick up after your dog, especially on the trail. I slipped and fell hard, knee is swollen and very bruised. The fallen leaves cover up these surprises! Thank you :)
