Located on Zena Road and Route 212, this was the first property ever protected by WLC. The acquisition of its 22-acres in 1989 was made possible by hundreds of donations from Woodstock residents. Our Zena Nature Walk is a nice way to explore this scenic preserve, as well as learning more about the preserve from reading the brochure found at the kiosk. Enjoy a beautiful view of Overlook Mountain from either the Joy Hopkins-Hausman Memorial Picnic Table or the Irina Branzburg Memorial Bench. A loop trail mowed through the hayfield passes along the banks of the Fontyne Kill, a tributary stream to the Sawkill Creek. Check out the newly-planted streamside area where student volunteers replaced invasive Mugwort with a collection of diverse native plants to prevent erosion. Park along the shoulder of Gitnick Road near the entrance.
