Genesee Fairy Trail

Fairy Trail Opening Soon!

Last year was the first year for the Fairy Trail in Genesee and the results surpassed all expectations. 25 fairy homes were installed along the upper portion of Ryan’s Streamside Trail between the trailhead at Genesee Vista Road and the pedestrian bridge. The quality of the homes was exceptional and the short walk appealed to all ages. 

I am pleased to report that Genesee will proceed with plans for a second year for the Fairy Trail this summer.  

The viewing dates will be from July 4 – Sept 15.   

There will be a maximum of 30 Fairy Trail houses and reservations can be made by contacting Scott Jacobs at starting May 15.

Fairy Trail houses may be installed along the trail on Saturday, July 2 and Sunday, July 3.  

Please review the “Genesee Fairy Trail Guidelines for Housing and Site Development” May issue of the The Genescene to understand the rules, appropriate housing styles and responsibilities.  

All Fairy Trail housing must incorporate the utmost respect for our beautiful natural environment, assuring that our ecosystem along Streamside is not compromised.  

Please contact me if you can volunteer your time to help with the set-up on July 2 and 3 and for trail monitoring from July 4 through Sept 15 to make sure that all Fairy Trail houses are in good condition.  

I would like to acknowledge the input and support from the Trails Committee, Facilities Committee, Trail Stewards, Open Space Committee (formerly GEM) and Open Space Manager, Brian Maillett. I would also like to thank each of you for your support of the Fairy Trail and I look forward to a successful second season this summer!
