Albany Helderberg Rail Trail
When I got to where it begins in Albany, it was incredibly nasty cold, very windy and overcast so I opted to ride it at another time.

Traveling south on the Taconic, I decided to revisited the Hibernia Bridge abutments on Wappinger Creek. Although it is much more overgrown since my previous visit in 2015 (link), now there is a wood chip pathway and a lovely bench at the abutment. Not sure if it was built by a neighbor or the town but its nice to know the ancient stonework gets appreciated.
