Trail Overview

This 10-mile Empire State Trail section is part of the 36-mile Albany-Hudson Electric Trail, which runs from the City of Hudson to the City of Rensselaer. The segment starts at a trailhead parking area in the Village of Nassau, in Rensselaer County, and heads northwest past woods, streams, lakes, wetlands, and residential areas. The segment ends at Southern Avenue in the Town of East Greenbush. Public parking and local services are available in Nassau and several locations along the route. This segment is primarily a paved off-road rail-trail, welcoming walkers and bicyclists of all abilities. However, visitors will encounter several short on-road sections, where trail users share the road with vehicle traffic.
