Hart’s Woods is located near Moseley Road, in the northwest quadrant of Perinton, and is accessed from Clarkes Crossing to the south, or from the Minerva DeLand School property to the north. Hart’s Woods has been recognized as a unique setting and is registered as a National Natural Landmark. Though small at 10 acres, it is a rare undeveloped remnant Beech-Maple-Oak forest, with 80-90 foot canopy and some individual trees of 2 feet DBH and 250 years of age. Herbaceous understory vegetation is reportedly recovering since the addition in 2012 of a new official trail system. The site is mainly used by nearby residents and by the neighboring Minerva DeLand School.
