Located behind Williston Central School near the baseball field, the Allen Brook Nature Trail offers excellent opportunities for bird watching and other wetland wildlife viewing. Beaver are known to be active in the area causing water levels near and around the boardwalk to fluctuate. Recently an extension trail was added to the existing trail system providing a connection to the Chatham Woods development and North Williston Road.

On your walk, stop at the boardwalk over the Allen Brook River to observe wildlife.

Great for a family walk or ski. Also, the Williston Community Park (Located behind Williston Central School) offers two soccer fields, two softball fields, a Little Leaque field, Babe Ruth field, two sand volleyball courts, horseshoe pits, and a skating rink. The Village Bike Path runs through this park making it an excellent destination for all kinds of recreation. Also located nearby are two tennis courts and an outdoor basketball court with lights for evening play. Parking is available.

Other Information

Hunting along the trail is restricted.
