Runner Notes

If you like ankle-biting/twisting rocks to negotiate, this is the trail for you!

Description

The Wiccopee Trail is located in Clarence Fahnestock Memorial State Park. It is marked with blue discs and can either be accessed from School Mountain Road or at the end of the Charcoal Burner Trail. It is typically done as part of a loop run with several other trails. Starting from School Mountain Road, the Wiccopee Trail climbs briefly then levels out for a bit. The trail is very rocky with embedded granite rocks with sharp edges (see photos). Sturdy running shoes are a must have. The trail meanders through the forest with some short steep climbs, but the real obstacle is the rocky trail. The trail ends where the Charcoal Burner Trail starts at its north end.

Not many people venture this far north in the park. During the loop that I did with this trail, I did not see a single person on a beautiful summer Sunday.
