Schoharie Creek Preserve


The northern boundary of the Schoharie Creek Preserve features extensive waterfalls along Wilsey Creek that flow to the Schoharie Creek. The loop trail also offers excellent views of Schoharie Creek, where those with a NYS Fishing License can fish from shore. A significant portion of the trail to and from Schoharie Creek is quite steep and strenuous.

The 198-acre Schoharie Creek Preserve was given to the conservancy in 1998 by Dr. Lester Citrin and Dr. Clifford Tepper of Schenectady. Their desires for public enjoyment of the land and views of where the Wilsey and Schoharie Creeks meet continue today. The property was largely cleared for agriculture well into the 1960s. Two old barns and some of its equipment are of the few remains left that point to the preserve’s agricultural past.
