Hiked about 1.9 miles total on another humid summer day. Was fortunate to stay dry, with thunderstorms in the forecast.

Bear Swamp Preserve(Westerlo-Albany County)
Visited the Bear Swamp Preserve today, a Nature Conservancy property located in the Albany County hilltown of Westerlo. The 310 acre Preserve was designated a Registered National Natural Landmark in 1973. Parking is found on the south side of Albany County Route 404(Bear Swamp Rd).
After 1.6 miles the trail terminates at the highway. You must walk about .3 of a mile east along the county highway to complete the loop. Luckily, this is a very quiet, rural country road that doesn't see much traffic.
