Middleburgh Cliffs(Schoharie Valley)
Been wanting to explore a bit of the Long Path lately, so drove out to the Schoharie Valley to explore a section of the LP along the scenic Middleburgh Cliffs. The Long Path is a 347 mile foot trail beginning at the George Washington Bridge in Fort Lee, NJ and ending in Altamont, NY with current plans for extensions to the north.
The section I'd be hiking today is a beautiful trail with many views, located just outside the village of Middleburgh and a little shy of an hour west of Albany. It can be a little tricky finding the trail, however, even with good directions. You can park at the large pull off at the corner of Route 30 and 145 and walk the streets to the trailhead following the aqua blazed dots or park in a residential neighborhood(I did ask permission) at a turn around spot on MT Path. Here is a view of where I parked my car and started my walk.
