Ushers Road State Forest

This forest has a quiet little 2.5 mile loop trail through some beautiful woods (on Ushers Road in Clifton Park cross roads are English Road and Rt 9, there is a little parking lot). Lots of old trees and birds singing on a brisk afternoon. There were a few bridges to cross over streams.

IMG_3295The Zim Smith trail goes on for some length and is very flat. We were walking beside many backyards and signs that say ‘quiet’ in numerous ways, I guess these people want their privacy and I can’t blame them. IMG_3296We decided to just walk a bit and then turn back and complete our loop at Ushers, a much more serene place to be.
