This area is probably best known for its Falls at the south entrance of the property, but I had been there a couple times already so I headed to different entrance here to explore. The Falls, known as Rensselaerville Falls, are quite spectacular, but there are over 12 miles of trails in this beautiful area, so there are plenty of other sites to see as well.
I parked at the kiosk next to the Eldridge Research Station and headed out on the Lincoln Pond trail. To get started on the trail you must first pass by the Dam at the south end of the pond.
The trail follows Ten Mile Creek from the dam down to the lake. There were some interesting areas in the creek where fallen leaves had gathered and looked like an artists work.
Headed back to the car once I got from one end of the lake to the other, but was left with a good feeling here. The trails are very well cared for, and the surrounding woods are ruggedly handsome. A very nice area to get out and explore, only about 45 minutes west of Albany.
