For several days during the weeks of March 19 – April 15 all of the trails in Karner Barrens East will be temporarily CLOSED to all public use while 23 acres of pine barrens are mowed with a large mowing machine called a hydro-axe. This work will require trail closure for approximately 3-5 days. Mechanical treatments of this type are part of the necessary and important management that takes place
throughout the Albany Pine Bush Preserve. For your own safety please obey all area CLOSED signs during this time. You can call 518-456-0655 x1250 to ask about trail access on a particular day.
