About Leyden Wildlife Management Area
Leyden Wildlife Management Area covers the hills surrounding Ball Mountain. You’ll find a mature upland forest of transitional hardwoods (oak, sugar maple, birch) mixed with white pine and eastern hemlock. Interspersed within the property are over 120 acres of open habitats including old field habitat, shrubland, and ridgetop heaths. Many of these open areas contain apple trees and blueberry barrens maintained for wildlife. East Glenn Brook flows through the western portion of the WMA.

The WMA can be accessed from Eden Trail Road on the east, East Glenn Road on the west, and from Oak Hill Road on the south. There is a gravel parking area that can accommodate 4 cars on the north part of the WMA off of East Glenn Road.
