The Fox Preserve is 70 acres of protected land in Colonie. This 70-acre property was donated to the Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy. The Fox Preserve’s trail system winds through diverse habitats. The trail passes Shaker Creek. Old oak trees provide habitat for migratory birds like the Baltimore oriole, and open fields create ideal nesting areas for eastern bluebirds, the state bird of New York.

Brand new trail as of October 2017, well built, but right at the start there is some mud. It was slightly overgrown at the viewpoint and a good weed-wacking would help. Overall though, very nice trail ... I will return in the future.
