Smelt Brook Preserve (York)

Smelt Brook Preserve is a 300+ acre property owned by the York Land Trust.  A 1.4 mile loop trail through a mature forest of hickory and oak trees leads to views of salt marshes and the York River.  Parking for the preserve is across the street in a lot shared with the Highland Farm Preserve, another York Land Trust property.

I was on my way home from Massachusetts and needed a break from driving so picked the preserve due to its close proximity to I-95.  It was a good choice, scenic and long enough to stretch my legs.

Here is a map of my hike.  For more information about the preserve visit the York Land Trust's website.
