Just beyond the kiosk, the trail drops quickly down a steep slope where icy footing can cause problems.

Swift Wetland Preserve/ Phillipin Kill Preserve/ Ashford Glen(Capital Region)
Got out and explored three local preserves this afternoon after work, on what turned out to be a pretty nice January day. All three preserves are owned and managed by the Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy, which does a phenomenal job protecting land and to date has preserved over 3000 acres locally, with 1700+ acres open to the public. Started at the 21.6 acre Swift Wetland Preserve which is located in a residential section of Delmar just off Delaware Ave. The preserve can be accessed by following Evelyn Drive until its end. The yellow trail starts just past a very nice kiosk and wanders through woods that are surrounded by residential neighborhoods. All the trails are level and make for easy walking.
