Comeau, Woodstock Hike

A mild, yet scenic nature walk right outside the town Woodstock was naturally filled with hikers, families, and dog walkers on a sunny day. Comeau [1 Comeau Dr Woodstock, New York 12498 – upper lot is closer to trail entrance] has just over a mile of trails to explore so it’s perfect natural component to add to a relaxing day of exploration. Walk through the gate into an open field.
