Vischer Ferry Nature and Historic Preserve is located along the Mohawk River in the Town of Clifton Park at the intersection of Riverview and Van Vranken roads. A parking lot adjoins the trailhead at that intersection. The Mohawk-Hudson Bird Club lists this preserve as a good bird watching site in Saratoga County and the Audubon Society of the Capital Region also features this preserve for bird watching.
