Tips
Getting There

The Albany Pine Bush Preserve contains nearly 18 miles of official marked, multiple-use trails. Most trails are considered easy to moderate and vary from wide open sandy trails to narrow, grassy woodland passages. The topography is generally flat with gradual slopes up and down the natural sand dunes.

There is minimal shade on this trail, bring water. This trail (without connecting to Kings Highway Barrens) is NOT a loop.

From Central Ave, take Rt 155 South to Old State Road. Follow Old State to Kings Rd. Trailhead and parking on right in about 100 yards.

part of the 20 mile Pinebush challenge. not good for dogs due to quantity of broken glass. some pretty dune views, but also highway noise.

Lots of broken glass and bugs. Connects to Kings Highway Barrens and the DiCaprio Park Trails.

I have never seen a trail with more broken glass. it everywhere and not limited to the trail but also in the woods. I feared the entire time that my dogs would cut their feet.

I enjoyed it but only .4 miles in there were signs that the public was not allowed to continue the trail. It was nice up until that point but very disappointed
