Length: 1.2 mi • Est. 29 m
This trail is in the NORTHERN set of trails behind WMHT (it is unrelated to the Waterfall Spur Trail also in this park). This trail area traverses a set of cascades and small waterfalls, along with a beautiful 10 foot waterfall. The trail is a loop with significant inclines and declines along with two water crossings which can prove difficult in high water. Much wildlife is in the area including chipmunks, squirrels, and white tailed deer. The loop is well marked with "Red" discs.Show more

There are two trails areas in the Rensselaer Tech Park; this set is the southern set and is only labeled "Trail." The main "Red" trail travels to a bridge where the "Waterfall Spur Trail" splits off. It is a nature walk from the park down to the train tracks near the Hudson River. There is plenty of beautiful scenic areas here along with wildlife and a stream containing a set of small cascading waterfalls.Show more
