ECOS Spring Walks
April 23 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
APRIL 23 Lock 7 & Bike Path: For this walk, led by Ed Kautz, we’ll meet at the parking area where the Mohawk-Hudson Bikeway crosses Lock 7 Rd., and walk west on the bike path. It’s paved and easy walking. Expect to see early spring wildflowers like hepatica and Dutchman’s breeches.
Directions: From the Schenectady area, take Rosendale Rd east from its start at the junction of Union St. with Rt. 7 in Niskayuna. After 2.2 miles Rosendale Rd. makes a 90 degree right turn; instead, turn left onto Lock 7 Rd., and go a half mile to a small parking area on the right. The parking area is just before the bikeway crossing. From the north on Balltown Rd., take River Rd. east to its end at Rosendale Rd. Turn left and go half a mile to the 90 degree right turn, and follow the directions above.
