Walk - Schenectady County Forest

This afternoon, after a cool dreary morning, Holly and I got out for a walk at the Schenectady County Forest, up in the hills of Duanesburg. We threw microspikes in the car, wondering a little about the higher elevation, but that was where they stayed once we arrived at the trailhead. The trails were muddy, but not all that bad for this early in the spring.

We walked the long blue loop until we reached the new Town of Duanesburg Hiking Trail to the north of the forest. After hiking that loop, we returned via the rest of the blue loop for about a 90-minute walk. It looked and felt like spring out there, though there were no leaves on the trees or any signs of anything sprouting from the ground just yet. Sunny and 70F is a very welcome sort of day in mid-March, and it was nice to feel the warmth again.
