Schoharie Creek Preserve

The Schoharie Creek Preserve is a 198 acre parcel on the West bank of the Schoharie Creek. Work is in progress (with the help of this chapter) to build a series of trails on the preserve.

Parking is in a cleared parking lot on Butler Road, near the corner of Burtonville Road.

The trail is generally flat with a few gentle slopes. It first skirts an old man-made farm pond, crosses some overgrown fields and then follows the Mill Creek past a series of picturesque waterfalls. The trail crosses Butler Road and continues along a ridge bordering the Schoharie Creek and reaches Butler road again opposite the firetruck filling access road to the pond. More trails are in the works for the property that lies to the west of Burtonville Rd.

Pond at Schoharie Creek Preserve
After Mill creek goes over its final waterfall at the Schoharie Creek preserve, it's blocked  from making a directly route to the Schoharie Creek by this narrow rocky cliff.  You can see the affect the water has as the creek has run at different levels.
