We started at a seasonal road known as the "Jiggs Highway", which made for great snowshoe hiking.

Capital District Wildlife Management Area(Rensselaer County)
Located high up on the Rensselaer Plateau along the Stephentown-Berlin town line is the 4153 acre Capital District Wildlife Management Area. Gravel Miller Road provides several different access points to parking and trails that wander throughout these vast woods. Camping is available at Cherry Plain State Park, located in the middle of the Wildlife Area.
With an elevation of over 1700 feet, this area usually gets hit with winter pretty hard.
