Thacher (aka John Boyd Thacher) State Park is part of the Helderberg Escarpment that overlooks Albany. It's just a quick 25 minute drive from our apartment, and while we'd explored the area before, we'd never hiked the Indian Ladder Trail.
The trail was a very easy and beautiful hike. (As you can see, I did it in flip flops). There are caves and a waterfall, which was just a little trickle in August... I know... quite a shocker.
We had a great time and will definitely walk it again in the spring when the snow has melted and the waterfall is in full force!
