mill road scenic overlook 

The Mill Road Scenic Overlook is one of the most scenic locations in our region and it is ideally located along the WNY Southtowns Scenic Byway. You often see cars lined up watching the sunset or people enjoying the view from benches. 


The property is also one of Aurora’s most important natural areas. It includes 18 acres of mature forest with a dense hemlock grove, an intermittent stream, a sedge marsh, and 30 acres of open meadow that support rare grassland bird species including nesting populations of bobolinks. 

The land is owned by the Town of Aurora while the Land Conservancy holds a conservation easement on the property.


The Western New York Land Conservancy is an accredited regional not-for-profit 501 (c) 3 land trust that works with landowners, municipalities, and other organizations to help them conserve their most cherished natural areas and working farms.
