Changed from “Bedford Reservation–Bike And Hike Trail, Alexander Rd. South Lot”. The trail follows Sagamore Creek south.

Bedford Reservation–Bridal Veil Falls
Changed from “Bedford Reservation–Bridal Veil Falls Trail”. The hotspot may be used for any of the trails in the Bridal Veil Falls area.

Bedford Reservation–Hemlock Creek Picnic Area
Changed from “Bedford Reservation–Tinkers Creek.” This hotspot has been used for may years as the starting place for bird walks along Tinkers Creek. This better identifies the section of Tinkers Creek for these checklists.
