The 2.5-mile Liberty Loop Trail was created on a former sod farm, which, before it was manipulated for agricultural use, had been a forested wetland. The trail is co-aligned with the Appalachian Trail for one mile. The trail loops around several managed wetland units, providing an excellent opportunity to observe a wide variety of waterbirds, (waterfowl, shorebirds and wading birds), as well as numerous species of songbirds along the edges of the trail in spring, summer and fall. In winter, the Liberty Loop is one of northern New Jersey and southern New York’s best locations for raptors such as Northern Harrier, Rough-legged Hawk and Short-eared Owls. The trail parking area is located on the south side of Oil City Road in Pine Island (Warwick), New York.
