We enjoy hiking throughout the Capital Region, from revisiting trails to checking out new ones. We are working on the Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy 20 Preserve Challenge, and recently learned of the Niskayuna 9 Challenge. You can earn a patch by doing the hikes, but I just like finding new hikes and creating new challenges for myself.
We have visited many of these and hope to check them all out!

You have an awesome list here. I always love a spot with a waterfall.
How gorgeous! And how perfect is this challenge for you?? I cannot wait to see more pictures. Waterfalls are my favorite.
There are so many beautiful places you all have visited!
Sounds like you have visited some great places. What a great idea. I always love hiking in places with a waterfall.
It sounds like you have done a fair few hikes. It must be lovely to go walk through these beautiful places.
That waterfall is so beautiful. I wish that we had local trails like this to go hiking. I did a bit of research and there are a few things around but it looks like if I wanted the cool places, Id have to drive a few hours south.
Sharing this with a friend of mine that hikes for the soul purpose of finding waterfalls!
I am noting this place as it looks wonderful and i LOVE hiking ever since moving to Eastern PA!
It looks like a wonderful place to go hiking. I would love to be able to make there one day.
Wow! These hiking challenges look so cool and awesome! The fountain featured above looks so mesmerizing! That’s what we all love about hiking, to see these wonderful works of nature! Truly marvelous!
Your list is amazing, lots of beautiful places! I would love to visit some of these myself one day
What a wonderful challenge. I am sure that my husband will love it too! He loves hikes!
