Rensselaer Plateau Hiking: Albert Family Community Forest

Albert Family Community Forest, located at the end of Hayes Road in East Nassau, opened in the spring of 2017. This 353-acre parcel was made possible by a generous bargain sale by Kevin and Mary Albert and a grant from the U.S. Forest Service Community Forest Program. This project would not have been possible without the support of the local communities and the community members that make up the Community Forest Committee.

It features old homesteads, wetlands, deep gullies, and unique rock piles, with picnic areas also located on designated trails. The trails total approximately 4 miles of Plateau habitat, in a diversity of forest features.
