    Grafton SP (Taconics of NY)

    I was wondering if anyone had been to Grafton SP in Rensselaer County. I have been to Cherry Plain SP and Cherry Plain WMA which is a little to the south of Grafton, and it was great for Mtn Biking, XC Skiing, hiking, hunting, and wildlife viewing. I always like going to unheard of places that are not visited often, so if you have any info on Grafton please let me know. Thanks in advance.
    "I mushed from Point Barrow thru a blizzard of snow
    Been out prospectin' for two years or so
    Pulled into Fairbanks the city was a boom
    So I took a little stroll to the Reddog Saloon
    As I walked in the door the music was clear
    The purtiest voice I had heard in two years
    The song she was singin' made a man's blood run cold
    When It's Springtime In Alaska, it's forty below."

    Grafton is a nice destination during all seasons. There are miles of well marked mountain bike trails which double as ski and snowshoe trails, excellent opportunities for ice fishing, hunting, picnicing, swimming, and boating. Definately worth checking out.

    Grafton

    A few notes on Grafton - its very popular during the warmer months, and fairly popular during winter with snowshoe, XC, and ice fishing. Snowmobiling is also rather popular here as well.

    I did 6K snowshoe a few weeks ago around Shaver Pond and the lake itself - very nice.

    But - not sure where you are coming from, the last few days of warming and the next 3 including rain will likely destroy what was a well packed snowshoe and XC run.

    Good luck. Email me if you need more. I grew up in that general area.
