Upper Bowkers Woods is a simple, quiet stand across from the Rockwell Museum. It is completely wooded and has a small vernal pool called Cinderella’s Pond, which has been identified as having some endangered species. This property was one of several parcels acquired via trust from the will of Robert R. Bowker, one of the founders of the American Library Association. The original parcel was conveyed to the Association on November 27, 1941. Portions along Mohawk Lake Road were sold in the 1940s.
Conservation Restriction. None. (There are restrictions on one of the sold parcels concerning tree cutting.)
Trails. There is an old, indistinct trail that goes northwest from the pond. It extended over to Mohawk Lake Road, but crosses one of the sold parcels and is now private property.
Size. 12.6 acres
