  • We are at Vischer's Ferry preserve a number of times a year. We often enter at the west end near the power plant. There is a nice view of the falls and often see a bald eagle who lives on the island. ...  more »
  • Walking in the preserve is the perfect spot to get fresh air and exercise. There are paths along the former Erie Canal. It is well taken care of and easy to navigate. A small parking lot is available.  more »
  • One or my favorite places to take a walk with my dog. Will also do some trail running in the summer when it's not so damp. The preserve offers a lot of trail space traveling through the woods. You will definitely see a lot of birds and may see some other wildlife. The park borders the Mohawk river to one side and a section of the Erie canal on the other. If you like the outdoors and live in Clifton Park this place is a must visit. Very well maintained and clean. Sometimes it gets pretty busy with a lot of people, but only because it's so popular for fishing, dogs, and walking.
  • Always love to come here. Great trails of all lengths and so much history to see and nature to experience. Other than some trails being a bit overgrown and sections being poorly marked this is a great area to visit.
