Home to the World's First Recycled Plastic Bridge
Access the trail via the Hannacroix Creek Preserve parking lot on Rt 144 just south of the Albany/Greene County line.
The trail traverses a cat-tail marsh on a boardwalk constructed by the Conservancy volunteers in 2007-2008. Along the way you pass through a cottonwood forest, old ruins from the ice houses and a viewing platform over-looking a tidal pond. The main trail continues across a bridge spanning the tidal creek connecting the pond to the Hudson River. This bridge was constructed with "lumber" fabricated from re-cycled plastic water bottles. The trail proceeds another 500 ft to its terminus overlooking the River and the Hannacroix Creek Cove.
