Getting There

This 63 acre preserve has close to two miles of marked trails that wander through wetlands and towering pines in the Town of Northumberland, New York. The Coldbrook Preserve was officially opened in April of 2013 after Jim & Christine McKnight donated the property to Saratoga PLAN, fulfilling their long-term dream of seeing the land permanently conserved. Although the property was once primarily farmland, the preserve has since grown back to forest, and has a section of the Cole Brook stream running through the land. The Coldbrook Preserve provides a significant buffer to wetland habitat for the Blanding’s Turtle, a New York State threatened species that was discovered in the Wilton area in 2003.

From Saratoga Springs head east on Lake Avenue (Route 29). After approximately 7 miles, take a left onto Homestead Road. In about a 1.9 miles you will see the Preserve sign on your left-hand side. Parking for this preserve is along the road.

Wonderful trail! My son loved seeing all the newts and toads. He also enjoyed all the little bridges too. I’m glad he had on his boots on because some areas were muddy. Trail was well marked and easy to follow. The forest was quite and peaceful. The parking was VERY small and over grown. Barely enough space for 2 cars. Bring heavy duty bug spray, lots of mosquitoes!

Attempted this trail using the homestead Rd entry. The 2 spots that are available for parking didn’t seem safe or out of the road enough. The first 20-30ft of the trail is WAY over grown about up to my hips. The trail “looked” clear beyond the high crass and weeds but unknown and didn’t try it. This trail needs to be cleaned up for the season. I will go back to check it out another time because it seems like a good weekday trail.

Nice out and back loop. Muddy at points but sticks and boards help. Lots of growing ferns!

Parking is limited yes, the trails aren’t easiest to find at time but beautiful trail. Once in the woods the beauty is serene, you feel as though it is all fake. I loved it, my dogs loved it.
