Today, I joined a group of friends on a tour of some new trails in the Hennig Preserve, a property of Saratoga P.L.A.N. in the town of Providence north of the Capital District. The elevation here varies between 1200 and 1600+ feet, and the land is heavily forested with a mix of hardwoods and softwoods. Friends Walt, Norm, and Jackie have volunteered a lot of time here improving existing trails and creating some new ones. Joining us today was one of the land's donors, Barbara Hennig, who was able to provide a lot of the history of the parcel. We walked about 4.4 miles altogether, turning around at Round Pond near the eastern end of the preserve.
