This is a great place to get out and put on some miles during season while golfing is closed to the public. Very popular dog walking destination and if there is snow it offers an opportunity to cross country ski.

Walking

Paved route around the golf course with a few steep hills. Lots of dogs not on leashes. Nice large parking lot. Not especially scenic, but a good place for some exercise. There are some additional paths, but I stayed on the paved perimeter.

WalkingIcy

A 4+ mile walk on a paved cart path. Over populated with people and dogs (off leash). I would personally rather hike on a secluded path in the woods than a paved path. Great for people with mobility issues I suppose.

RunningGreat!

This is a golf course first, walking destination second. It can only be used for walking when the course is closed. It is a great walk with hills and there are trails if you wish to get off the paved golf cart paths. This course is paid for by those that pay golf fees and the Albany City tax payers, for those that come here to let your dog run free, it is a gift, treat it as such and clean up after your dog. Please respect the roped off areas on the greens. The ropes are not for you to stand in the middle and chat while your dogs chase each other and do $1000.’s of dollars of damage. I have been coming here for over thirty years in every season, to golf, run, walk, snow shoe, with dogs...every year there are more people form outside of Albany using it to walk dogs off leash and not cleaning up. Maybe Albany should charge non residents a fee.

WalkingGreat!

Very nice view. Be careful of when you use as the course was not closed and some golfers were upset that we were walking there. The app states November through April to use this course. It’s November 11th, and the course is definitely not closed.

Great area to walk and take the dog. All paved paths and some dirt paths. Very busy, but easy to avoid people.

Nice walking trail. Only open in the winter when it’s not golf season. Dogs can be unleashed. Nice straight asphalt path that’s easy to follow. Lots of tough hills if you take the full trail. There’s many trail options depending on how long you want to hike.

Asphalt walking trail. Lots of dogs...Max thinks it’s unquestionably a five star. We enjoyed it. Do it while it’s “walking season”.
