Easy hiking with varied ecosystems. Dyken Pond was created after a dam was built to control the flow of the Poesten Kill for the the mills downstream. Today, it is the location of a nature preserve for the benefit of the public. It offers varied ecosystems for the casual hiker to explore - from beech-maple forests to spruce-fir swamps. Because of the location on the Rensselaer Plateau, it is often much cooler than lower elevations. A map and informational brochures are available at the kiosk near the parking area. This is a long counter-clockwise loop hike of the perimeter trails: Abbt Farm (brown), Otter Creek (yellow), Long Trail (white), Spring Trail (red), Long Trail (white) and finishing with a short road walk. From the parking area, head up the grassy hill and past the white building to begin this hike. If you continue walking past the barricade along the road, you will reach the canoe launch site on Dyken Pond in 5 minutes.Show more

The loop follows the yellow (Valley View) - orange (Vultures View) - white (Whoop-de-do) - red (Highpoint) trails. All trails are well marked. There are signs at all trail intersections except for the turn into red (Highpoint trail) from the white (Whoop-de-do) trail. The turn is easy to spot though, as the lean-to at the end of the red trail is visible from the white trail.Show more
