A Parks and Recreation Guide to locations for outdoor adventures in WNY.

Hampton Brook Woods
Wildlife Management Area in the Town of Hamburg, Erie County.


Western New York Outdoors home

Description:

A unique wildlife habitat and wooded area south of Eighteen Mile Creek.  Located west of East Eden Road.  Hiking and bird watching are popular along the scenic bluffs and this public greenspace.  The NYS DEC plans to expand for recreational use and wildlife preservation.

Access the trailhead at the end of Hampton Brook Road.  Look for the State Land signs and Rules and Regulations posting before the gated trail entrance.  After a short hike thru the woods you will reach the bluffs along the creek.  The trail is currently slightly overgrown, not well marked and climbing down to the creek can be tricky as there are no well defined access spots, but it is still a pleasant expedition.
