New trail in Webster … Hickory Bark Trail

Posted on October 31, 2014 at 2:09 PM by PattiAnn Schultz

The Town of Webster has added a new trail to its growing list of trails serving the Webster residents in their quest to enjoy the outdoors and hiking. After the town reshaped Van Ingen Drive, Mr. Harold Krieger, a long time advocate of saving the Hickory Bark trees in this area, approached me and Mark Yaeger, Parks and Recreation Director, about making a trail in the woods fronting Hard Road and the Route 104 Expressway.

In memory of his wife Ann, Harold graciously paid for two bridges to be built on the land so access could be acceptable over two streams that are located on the property. Then our Parks Department took the time to cut out a footpath throughout the woods so that residents could enjoy the Hickory Bark trees and other plant life. In memory of Mrs. Krieger a park bench will be installed along the trail for residents to rest and reflect as part of their walk through this new Webster trail.

New signage for the trail will be going up soon as members of the Friends of the Webster Trail make the new signs. To access Hickory Bark Trail one only has to park in the back parking lot adjacent to the girls softball fields behind the Webster Van Ingen Court house to gain access to the new bridges and trail.

The Town of Webster would like to thank Mr. Krieger for his donation of the bridges in memory of his wife Ann and hope Webster residents enjoy this latest trail addition to the Webster trail system.

If you have any questions about your town government, please feel free to contact me during regular business hours at (585) 872-7068; or email me anytime at
