Hike Hollyhock Hollow

This hike is in beautiful Hollyhock Hollow. There are seven miles of trails on 138 acres in this preserve owned by the Audobon Society of New York.

The sanctuary is in a fertile valley with wonderful wildflowers, moss-covered boulders, a picturesque stream, fascinating limestone geology, and intriguing historical clues of past land uses.

Our hike is an easy 2 mile walk around the perimeter trail. There are a few rocks, roots and slopes, but otherwise this hike is an easy walk for every ability. Please come dressed for the weather - bring snowshoes and microspikes if conditions require it. Participants must be over the age of 8, and up to age 16 with a guardian. Please dress in layers and bring water and snacks.

I will update on conditions as it gets closer.

DIRECTIONS: Take 32 southwest from Albany to the Village of Feura Bush. Turn left (south) on route 102 for 3 miles, to Rarick Road. Right on Rarick .2 miles to the Sanctuary. Park of the left.

    I would like to attend and am on the waiting list. Is there anyone coming who is departing from Albany? I live right off of Lincoln Park near Empire State Plaza.

    Don't forget to take precautions against tick bites if the weather is above freezing - deer ticks can be active any time the temperature gets above 35 degrees.
    I'm going to stick around after the organized hike to explore the rest of the sanctuary. Anybody want to join me?
