Long Mountain Trail, Albany


  • Preserve Size: Not sure
  • Trail Mileage: 2 miles one way
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: views, beautiful Miller Brook

When I walked this trail, the snow pack was still quite deep, so I didn’t see much of the stream that the trail follows for much of the way up. But I hear it is beautiful in the summer, with cascades and pools you can wade in, maybe swim in? In winter, this walk is pretty too. It’s an easy, gradual uphill (about two miles) to a view of the western mountains.

At the base of the mountain, there is a 1.9-mile mountain bike path on Bacon Hill.

Directions: From Main Street in Bethel Village, go south on Vernon Street for 6 miles. Pass Sumner Bean Road on your left, and the next left is the trailhead, marked with a trail sign. Be sure to head left at the trailhead marker.
