Cherry Plain State Park

Cherry Plain State Park and Capital District Wildlife Management Area

From Albany take I-90 east to exit 8. Then take SR 43 east about 10.5 miles to the intersection with SR 66. Proceed straight ahead on CR 42 (Taberton Rd). After about 8.5 miles turn right on Dutch Church Rd and then take an immediate right onto Miller Rd. Follow Miller Rd to the park.

The Capital District WMA basically surrounds the park and provides an extensive birding area.

Our book Birding New York's Hudson-Mohawk Region provides a suggested birding route and other very useful information about the area.
