This beautiful nature trail will take you over boardwalks and through the woods to a variety of habitats and scenic overlooks along a flat-water section of the Sacandaga River.
Located in the heart of Speculator this nature trail is a perfect spot for the entire family. Park at the large free parking area across from the Lake Pleasant beach on Route 30. Walk past the pavilion to an old time village recreation. From here you can follow the walkway to the start of the trail. Sign in and begin over part of the 850 yards of boardwalk throughout the trail.
The trails meanders through different habitats and wetlands. There are several interpretive signs throughout explaining the plants and animals. There are also four exhibits which explain about logging, geology and history of the area.
Enjoy the views from the River Overlook and Boat dock along the Sacandaga River and watch for the Blue Herons along the eastern side of the path following the river.
