Love Apple Farm in Ghent had a demonstration of birds of pray for fathers day.
As I was there a guy came to the water and said that theres a path to another park ( drove past it) and to stay on the trail because it cuts through private land. And that path leads you to another spot where you can see the river. If you walk up the gravel path if takes you to a pond. It was a bit muddy. The trails are very easy some spots there were roots and mud but besides that they were fine.
Willows at Brandow Point in Catskill.. Decided to go to the other side of the river for a change and stoped at a park I have driven past before. Theres a sign near the drive way as well as a big red house. Theres a barn thing you walk through to start the trail, with info about the land and animals you may see. The path leads you down to the river. Theres an old camp house as well as a bench.
