Are there rock piles in Coeymans, Alcove, Indian Fields, Ravena, New Baltimore, or Bethlehem?

In viewing your website, I was curious if anyone had come across rock piles in the area that is the interest of my study, mainly Albany County just north of Greene County [NY] especially around the Alcove Reservoir and the Basic Creek Reservoir. The towns would include: Coeymans, Alcove, Indian Fields, Ravena, New Baltimore, and Bethlehem.

Reader Cully seems to be closest to this area. If you search this blog for "Reader Cully" there are photos of rock piles just north and west of this area, between Rensselaerville and Berne.

Also, are there any public land access areas/hiking trails in these areas? It's a little bit too far for me to explore, but maybe Reader Cully is nearby.
