The Normans Kill East trail is a short but scenic walk through forests alongside the Normans Kill. Easily accessible by public transportation, this preserve is the perfect quick walk in the woods to recharge after a busy day in the office or classroom. The Normans Kill is a significant tributary to the Hudson River and the clearing provides great views to Albany’s Historic Normans Kill Farm.
The lands of Normans Kill East serve as a buffer the site of a 2000 landslide along Delaware Avenue in the Town of Bethlehem. Albany County obtained the parcels of the Normans Kill Preserves in 2005 due to tax foreclosure, which were then subsequently turned over to Mohawk Hudson land Conservancy for protection.
This preserve is accessible by CDTA Route 18; a short walk from the Delaware Ave/Mason Rd stop.
