      About 10 miles of segmented singletrack at Colonie Town Park in Cohoes/Latham. The trails are fairly well marked with arrows and labels in many areas. The terrain is mostly beginner and intermediate with a few difficult sections by the river that are quite rocky. A good mix of smooth trails with roots and rocks in many sections to keep things interesting.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
