On Cox Creek Path, the scenery has changed

Written April 6th, 2022 by Hasso Hering

The Cox Creek Path in Albany is about one-third of a mile long and runs from Simpson Park to Salem Avenue. It used to be a scenic segment of Albany’s system of walking and cycling paths. This spring the nature of the scenery has dramatically changed.


Periwinkle update: Trash mound is gone

Written September 22nd, 2021 by Hasso Hering

In this video, you are riding with me on a section of Albany’s Periwinkle Path that is about to be rebuilt — whether it needs it or not, I’m tempted to add.
