Event Type Walk/Hike Description Come take a hike in an urban area that has surprising open space: scenic gorges, beautiful waterfalls, and rich history. The Narrows is a trail in progress which, when complete, will link multiple existing open spaces within the City of Troy. We will walk along completed trails in the woods as well as future trails along adjacent roads. Walk along sections of the Wynants Kill, walk through Burden Pond Preserve, continue up and over to Spring Avenue then down to Poesten Kill Gorge Park and the Poesten Kill to Downtown Troy. Join us to see what the trail could be when complete, and if you enjoy it, please help us make it a reality! Sponsoring Organization Transport Troy
