Lengthy. Not much to look at. Easy boring hike.
These are EASY trails, not difficult as the app says. A few short, long, and very long loops through schodack island and all are very flat without much variation in scenery. Parking is free on weekdays and some weekends.
big park, nice easy terrain, good for snow shoeing. it was free parking when I went. not the most amazing scenery but good for exercising.
We've hiked these trails in the Spring, Summer and Fall. Depending on what you are looking for they can be a nice relaxing, flat walk and if you are lucky you may spot one of the nesting eagles. Unfortunately it is along the river so you do run into garbage that has washed up but we still enjoy the trails.
Lots of BIG spiders!!!! The trails are not maintained as well as they should be....and the park is pretty small and they charge a fee...I've been to bigger nicer parks and have gone in for free...This is a two star park for me, nothing exciting to write home about. And couldn't even locate the GeoCashe!
