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.

The Village of Delanson has initiated this Email Notification system so residents can be notified by email immediately of important information or any emergency situation that has developed in the Village.  Examples would be water main breaks, water main repairs, hydrant flushing, sudden changes in Village services such as garbage pickup or snow plowing, flooding, road closings, damaged roads etc..  Emails will not be sent for normal news items, notices or scheduled events. In addition, updates will be emailed to keep residents informed of the ongoing circumstances as new information is received by the Village until the event or emergency is over. There is no cost for this service.
