Located within the Capital District Region, the Albany Pine Bush Preserve contains one of the best remaining examples of an inland pine-barrens ecosystem in the world. The Albany Pine Bush is a unique inland pine barrens environment. This sandy area is home to the endangered Karner blue butterfly. The trails are mostly flat with only a few small hills - making it ideal for easy hiking, mountain biking, cross country skiing and snow shoeing. The trails are marked with round colored disks. Most are loops (red, yellow, blue) and a few are connectors (white). This hike is a big loop following the perimeter trails in a clockwise direction. Please stay on trails. This is a environmentally sensitive area.

122219 First time visitor to this and first time snowshoeing. We chose the 2.6 mile yellow trail to get acquainted with the place and will definitely be back. Other than hearing the distant sound of NY Thruway you'd hardly know just how close you are to development. Saw two bluejays, too

I love this trail. The pine barrens are so beautiful and unique, and it’s an essential ecosystem. This trail is the only place I’ve seen the Karner blue butterfly. Definitely go in the spring when the wild lupines are blooming, it’s absolutely gorgeous.

Do NOT go when it is humid and hot out. I have never been bit by so many bugs. Worse than the gnats in the south. Would have been beautiful if it weren't for the bugs.

Wasn’t a fan of this trail, but it would be nice for families. Going to try other trails next time.

Lots of ticks out. Pulled about a dozen off the dog and a few off the human. Otherwise a great trail.

I love walking this trail with my dog but there are so many ticks. I checked her before leaving during the spring/summer and I pulled at least 5 ticks off of her each time. (this is with her collar that usually does the job) Other than that it is a beautiful trail and I've never had any ticks on me.

I took my kids (ages 9, 10, and 12) and it was easy for them. Very sandy, but its cleared well. Not much to see, but the hilly parts are partitioned off into steps that make it easy for younger climbers. There was also a book posted periodically to keep them entertained. I will go again.

It was okay. The noise from the freeway traffic is a bit distracting, I never truly felt that I was wilderness hiking. The only attractive part for me was near the end of the trail as you enter a forest type of environment. An old landfill next door is clearly visible, but at least it had grass covering it. This is definitely my least favorite hike in the capital district area. I'm being generous with my 3 star rating because they're trying to make something with this place. You'll see.

Very nice trail! Great location and wonderful opportunity to see wildlife. Didn't see any deer but did notice tracks. Highly recommend it.

Nice trail. Well maintained. Walk under I-87 which is a little strange on a nature walk. Saw lots of critters big and small. Will be back.

Enjoyed the walk. It's well marked, currently trail is very visible as many people and skiers leave a very visible and well padded path. Interesting views and terrain.

I like this place, but I would not bring pets there. I did not have an issue with ticks on my body, but I do not roll around in the dirt and grass, typically. Also, there are multiple areas which can be kind of confusing, however it makes it so one can take a really long hike if they planned it out accordingly, and this is located in Albany. They also allow bow hunting, which is great, as there is no place else to bow hunt in the immediate area and there are a huge number of deer in the area. There is a nature center at one of the entrances and a pond with a stream at a different entrance. Nice area, though walking under I-87 is kind of odd when you do it.

nice trails but the ticks are horrible.

We were all covered in ticks by the time we left leading to a trip to the ER 7 days later. Out of all the places we have hiked this summer, this is the only trail this has happened. I wouldn't recommend taking children or pets.

broken glass everywhere absolutely horrible to take your pets

Very nice trails but the pine bush is loaded with ticks and tick nests on the path. Once I took my dogs there for a walk and ending up have ticks all over. We had to pull about 50 ticks alone off my dog. Plus my husband and I were stripping off clothing because you could seriously see ticks everywhere on our pants shoes shirt. I am used to ticks but this was by far the worst walk of my life when it came to ticks. Walked all of the pine bush and every since that day never again. So keep in mind spray your feet good with bug spray. Don't say you weren't warned! Other than that grab your camera and enjoy the different trails!!!
