Schenectady County Forest,
New York, Capital District,


Registration is required for this activity.

Registration is closed


This is an easy snowshoe or cross-country ski -- mostly level but a couple of short slopes. Will is going to be on skis and Nancy on snowshoes! This is not a commercial ski area, so no fee and the trails are not groomed but probably already tracked by others. We will meet at the parking lot at 10 AM. Bring water and a way to carry your jacket if you should get too warm. Afterwards we will go to our nearby house for hot soup and bread. Directions from I-90: (about 40 minutes total from Schodack): Take I-90 west to exit 25-A, which is I-88. Take I-88 west to exit 24 (Duanesburg). Turn left at the end of the exit ramp, then right on to route 20. Take route 20 through the center of Duanesburg to a right turn on to Duanesburg Churches Road (church on corner). Follow that 2.5 miles to a right on to Lake Road. Go 0.7 mile to a parking lot on your left, with a DEC sign saying Schenectady County Forest.
