Chippewa Run Natural Area
Chip Run is very diverse hiking area through four different ecosystems. It is also a birder’s paradise that protects Empire’s small town character. A stream corridor and beaver pond provide opportunities for wildlife viewing. Deer and turkey winter in in the old apple orchard; the sand pit is home to a turtle nursery and brook trout live in the stream that runs through the property. The area’s treasured beaver dams have entertained generations of children. A gorgeous 1-mile trail leads visitors through and around some of the most interesting and beautiful natural features of this 110-acre property.
