I'm in Albany, NY for two months and I would love some outdoor adventure ideas for this weekend (there are so many destinations to choose from - HELP!)

I'm in Albany for the next two months for work and it's possible that this may be my only work-free weekend (about a 50/50 chance). I want to make the most of tomorrow and Sunday while this weather remains gorgeous. I'm leaning towards a short-ish scenic drive (no more than 2 hours) in any direction where the road leads to a really awesome hiking spot. I'd prefer hiking on the moderate and up level, preferably that leads up to a wonderful vista/overlook/cliff kind of place.
Do you know of any?? There is an abundance of scenery here and I figured I'd reach out to locals.
Also, if you have any other must-see places or ideas, feel free to pass them on as well! For instance, I would also love to make it horseback riding, scenic drive with foliage, and maybe visit the Mohonk Mountain House (looks like there may be trails around the property).
(As a side note, maybe a meet-up with mefites here in Albany..?).
Thanks much for any ideas!
