XC Skiing - Mohawk River State Park

Formerly known as the "Schenectady Museum Preserve", this area in Niskayuna used to be wonderful for skiing in winter in the days before the snowshoe craze took hold. Now it's almost impossible to find a trail here that hasn't been snowshoed or walked immediately after a new snow.

We got about 6" in last night's "storm", and decided to go somewhere local for a short outing. Even though many snowshoers were out, the trails here were still pretty good with the fresh snow. We did some of our favorite downhills that we hadn't tried in several years of bad snow conditions, and skied for about an hour altogether.
