4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

I liked that my dog could run and enjoy nature. Beware- tons of ticks. Wear a hat and spray your dog.

“Pleasant diversion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

We live in the Pine Bush area. It's a great place to take a walk i nlate spring or fall. Accessible from so many places. And with the Mall and Stuvesant Plaza nearby, you can get your nature, shopping and junk food in all in an afternoon.

“Pine Bush”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

If you walk the trails, you can imagine what this region looked like to the Native Americans. The Pine Bush is a unique eco-system that is endangered by encroaching development and a landfill from the City of Albany that should have been closed a decade ago. On Route 155 you can now visit the Pine Bush Preserve Nature Center, that is very well done. Gorgeous in the mid-autumn when the low lying foliage is striking but also pretty any other season.
