One of the connecting trails through the preserve is the Paper Mill Trail, which passes by the former sites of several 19th century paper mills.

Hannacroix Creek Preserve
A sunny but brisk Tuesday afternoon was on tap as I headed out to the Hannacroix Creek Preserve, a New Baltimore Conervancy Property. The property actually straddles the town line of Coeymans and New Baltimore. The preserve follows the Hannacroix Creek to a waterfall, as well as featuring trails to old paper mills near the creek, a lookout trail, and a nature trail to the banks of the Hudson River. There is much to see here. Unfortunately the creek bed was nearly all dry.
