Hike the Lisha Kill Preserve Loop

Lisha Kill Preserve - Search Nearby - Added by Maria Gigliello

The Lisha Kill Preserve is a beautiful old-growth forest that is truly a hidden gem of the Capital Region. Located off of Rosedale Road, by Lock 7, this preserve offers hiking trails, the scenic Lisha Kill and lots of massive trees to be in awe of.

This 2.3 mile loop trail is lightly trafficked and great for all skill levels. Starting out the trail register, you will see signs from The Nature Conservancy which manages the preserve. Descending down a hill with lots of exposed tree roots, you will then cross over the meandering Lisha Kill and continue on into this nicely preserved old-growth forest. There are other trails that come off the main one, but they all lead back to the trailhead forming a loop. Be on the lookout for various birds and other wildlife such as deer.
