While visiting my brother up in Albany, we were at the Indian Ladder Farms apple picking. If you want to read more about that (click here). Only an 11 minute drive away was this state park that I saw earlier on Instagram that had amazing views. John Boyd Thacher State Park spans 2,155 acres and includes over 12 miles of trails that offer grand views of the Green Mountains in Vermont. Thacher Park also sits along the Helderberg Escarpment, which has been touted as one of the best fossil-bearing formations in the United States. Whether you want go for a hike or just drive up to the lookout spot, this is a must see place when visiting Albany!
