A gorgeous Thursday was in the forecast with nearly 100% sun and temps climbing through the 50's and into the low 60's. Drove out to Glenridge, which is about 5 miles north of Schenectady and visited the 100 acre Indian Kill Preserve, which is owned and managed by the Schenectady County Nature and Historic Preserve.
The preserve has a trail on the opposite side of the creek that can be accessed at low water levels during the summer. Today, however the water levels were too high to cross so walked about 2 miles total RT. After visiting with my girlfriend for an hour or so, I headed back out to Duanesburg and the Christman Sanctuary, a Nature Conservancy property.
Once into the woods and after a stream crossing, the trail passes through a young forest on its way to the Bozen Kill.
I saw several others on the trail, out soaking in the springtime warmth on a beautiful Thursday afternoon. Overall, it was a fantastic spring day and hiked a total of about 3.5 miles total for the day.
