Sally Wilber Memorial Trail
Sally Wilber Memorial Trail is open. Members and non-members of the YMCA are welcome to utilize the trail. There is no need to sign in. Open daily from dawn to dusk. If you have any questions, please contact the YMCA at 518-895-9500.
Access to the trail head is at the northeast corner of the building; where there is a sign for the Sally Wilber Trail. From there, follow the turkey tracks to a kiosk that has maps that guide you through just under a one-mile loop, featuring eleven educational stations. This trail does cross over the Normanskill creek so be aware of recent rain fall and possible high water.
The YMCA will monitor the creek and may close the trail if necessary. There is also an entrance to the trail off the sewer treatment plant (WWTF sign) road on Cole Rd.
This is a self-guided trail so please be careful and considerate. If you carry it in, please carry it out with you. The trail is pet friendly; dogs should be on a leash and please come prepared to clean up after them.
Reminder about open burning
It is prohibited at all times to burn garbage, trash, leaves, yard waste, yard debris, chemically treated wood such as pressure-treated lumber, plywood or painted wood in Delanson. Burn barrels or free standing fires are also completely prohibited in the Village.
- Open burning is the leading cause of wild fires in NYS. Common sense dictates that open burning is extremely dangerous during periods of hot dry weather and should not be attempted.
- The emissions of an open fire may not interfere with the reasonable enjoyment or quality of life or property or create a smoke or odor nuisance to a neighboring property.
- Open fires must be a safe distance from any structure, building, property line or trees, brush or shrubs.
- Open fires may be fueled only by paper, paper products (such as cardboard), unadulterated wood, clean lumber and charcoal. The burning of chemically treated wood such as pressure-treated lumber and plywood or painted wood is is a serious health hazard and is strictly prohibited.
Please be smart and considerate of your neighbors and the law.
To report an illegal open fire or a nuisance fire, you can call the DEC hotline at 1-844-332-3267 or the Fire Chief at 518-657-9273. The fire department has the authority to extinguish or order extinguished any open fire being conducted in violation of any provision of the our local Open Burn Law.
Please Slow Down
A recent radar study conducted by NYS DOT revealed that 59% of traffic
on Route 395/Main Street within the Village is exceeding the speed limit. But if you live here, it’s seems more like 95% of the traffic exceeds the speed limit. Please slow down to protect our children and pets.
