As the name suggests, Wiessner Woods is almost entirely forested. There is a small portion of meadow visitors pass through to get from the parking area to the trail head. The forest is a mature stand of hardwood and softwood trees including hemlock, spruce, white pine, maple, beech and birch. Several small streams traverse the property creating periods of standing water and seasonally wet trails during spring run-off. The property contains an extensive network of mellow trails including a portion of the Catamount Trail which connects to trails on the adjacent Halvorsen and Edson Hill properties.    

Wiessner Woods is open to the public for pedestrian recreational use including hiking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and dog walking. Hunting, mountain biking, and motorized recreation are not permitted.
