Quick morning hike with pups before work. Had the trail to myself at 7:30am. Good mixture of fields, woods and sandy dunes with scrub pine. Some small hills to get a little workout.

Easy but fun quick little hike! Looks like part of the trail was rerouted recently so just follow the actual trail not the gps here.

BEWARE OF TICKS! Great trail. Very well-maintained. Feels like you’re far away from Albany. Just enough hills to get a good sweat on without being intense. HOWEVER, we stayed on the trail the entire time, and my boyfriend still found two ticks on his legs afterward (despite wearing high socks). Luckily neither had burrowed, but it still makes us question if we’ll come back to an otherwise great trail. Be careful!

A nice walk even though it’s a little too sandy. There is a section full of blueberries tress with flowers, looking forward for the fruit.

Nice pine bush preserve — looks like a great running trail. Lots of birds! You do see the backs of houses throughout much of the trail , but besides that it’s a great walk

Easy with a few hills. Not very pretty to look at. We will try to go again in the summer and/or fall. Maybe it will be nicer to look at..

It feels like we were walking in people’s backyard. The trail is well maintained.

Nice trail. Not very difficult at all. Easy to follow trail markers. Just a little tricky to find the trail head as it's on the back of a corporate park.

This is a relatively easy walk with a broad, mowed path all along the two trail segments: Yellow is a shorter loop; Red adds some distance. Overall, this is an easy trail over gently rolling terrain that should be suitable for most people. Entrance and parking is through a corporate office park, but once on the trail, the setting feels more secluded. Much of the trail is without shade, so dress accordingly. This is a preserved pine barrens ecosystem, and it provides a glimpse of what much of the local landscape was like before fire suppression and development either caused the land to become woodland or to be overtaken by residential and commercial development. The popular notion that the Eastern US consisted solely of dense forests is not accurate. Barrens like the ones in the Albany area, or the sand hills of the Carolinas, were quite extensive and depended on regular, small-scale fires to maintain the dominance of pines, scrub oak, and other native plants. This trail has an informational display and there is a nearby center that has more displays and information. On a late August Monday afternoon, I had the area to myself. There was quite a bit of wildlife, including turkey, a hawk, songbirds, and a lot of chipmunks. Photographers should bring lenses capable of capturing the open views, as well as capturing more distant shots of wildlife.

A nice walk for my first hike in the Albany area! Much sandier than I expected which added a little extra challenge that I loved. The hills make it challenging as well and the trails are well marked. Beautiful views. I’ll definitely be back to do some of the other trails within the Preserve!

nice views. more or less easy although rated moderate. 2/3 of the trail doesn't have shades, so it's not really good when theres too much sun.

Easy to access, good for runners, fairly flat and manageable. Slight incline once in awhile. Lots of wild flowers and very well marked. This entire trail took me 45 minutes. Nice afternoon.

Very pleasant walk. The trails are well marked and straightforward. Trail was very peaceful and quiet. Liked being able to see more than just a few feet in front of me... A few challenging areas, that makes it interesting....

Fairly easy walk. A few hills, lots of sand. Trails are well marked and wide in most parts. Perfect for taking the dog on a walk not involving blacktop
