Super easy trail. Mostly grass. A few different areas to go in the water. Nice for wading by the shore but the current is strong in the middle. Whole trail shouldn't take more than 20 minutes if you don't stop by the water.

Great walk right in Ballston Spa! I found that the trail continues along the river in a narrow path. (Beware of dog poo in the field at the beginning of the trail).

Incredibly easy and short. A great family friendly picnic area really. Should be noted that the trail cannot be seen from the road. It is located in the back of what residents of Ballston Spa call Kelley Park. Easy flat trail with some benches and a swimming hole at the end before you loop around to finish the trail. Some decent fishing spots as well.
