An easy short loop around the lovely Siegel-Kline Kill Preserve [1452 County Rt 21 (Garage Place), Ghent] is a wonderful addition to any day down in Columbia County.
Take a look at the trail map, you will find just over a mile of trails to cover at this little gem of a park. Walk out into the wide open field, spy the mountains in the distance.
Climb up the hill on the red trail, I bet it blooms wild in spring.
The views of this rural landscape are beautiful,
a happy hawk hunting flies high in this protected stretch of land.
Make your way through the wooded trails,
and out to the banks of the Kline kill.
Look left and right, take in every little detail. Listen to the sound of the water and for nearby birds. Head back out through the field to complete your loop, and into your car with a refreshed peaceful feeling.
