406 State Route 3, Plattsburgh, NY 12901(518) 561-5000
Nature Conservancy Preserve. A variety of habitats can be observed here - a black spruce-tamarack bog, a northern white cedar swamp, a hemlock northern hardwood forest and a pine ridge. The half-mile Bog Walk traverses the bog and swamp on a boardwalk; 15 marked stops interpret the ecology and plant life. At the end of the boardwalk, the “Pine Bluff Trail” begins. The route ascends to a ridge 400 feet above Silver Lake and has eight marked stops. The trail guide for both trails is available at the trailhead.
