The Wapack Trail is a popular twenty-one mile, ridge-line hiking trail that passes through Windblown, well marked by yellow triangles. It was created in 1922, by Frank Robbins and Marion Davis. In 1963 Al Jenks bought the land that is now Windblown from Marion Davis.
Special notice regarding hiking at Windblown
The Wapack Trail passes through Windblown property and many other privately owned lands. Our neighbor has closed the section of the Wapack Trail that crossed his land just to the east of Windblown which included Stony Top and the Old Farm Trail. The Wapack Trail has been re-routed through Windblown. Please honor private property signs. You can view the re-route on our Trail Map – follow the yellow triangles.
Wapack hikers are asked not to park in Windblown’s parking lots.
There is a parking lot directly across the street from Windblown that is designated for Wapack hiking, as well as on Old Rindge Road which is opposite Wapack Road.
