Here in the autumn of 1777, American forces met, defeated and forced a major British army to surrender. This crucial American victory in the Battle of Saratoga renewed patriots hopes for independence, secured essential foreign recognition and support, and forever changed the face of the world.

This is a great trail for dogs. It ended up being more of a workout than we thought due to the snow and the hills. Really pretty though.
Beautiful and Peaceful. Cool learning the history along your walk.
There is a $3 pp entry fee to hike. The trail was well maintained. Half of the trail is through fields with full sun and the other half is through woods. Nice, east trail.
Good five-mile hike on sunny, brisk late-February Friday. Some icy spots were encountered.
Great Snowshoe Trail on a sunny cold winter day
The trail was well maintained. It's an easy "hike" with a lot of really cool history along the way. If you take all of the little side trails and check out all of the cannons, plaques, and other things you could easily make a half day trip out of it.
This was a very easy trail, lots of butterflies and history. A gem close to home. Half the trail was in the open sun the other half in the woods.
Easy walk, most of the history is along the road rather than the hiking trail.
Great trail. A bird watchers heaven
