Excellent day for a hike in the SPA state park. Nippy, but good.

Too populated as it wound through the state park; trails very poorly marked so we aren’t positive which trails we actually ended up following. Geysers were interesting but it was so crowded we didn’t really have time to appreciate them—had to keep moving. Nice views in places and we had gorgeous weather but it’s not a hike I’m interested in repeating.

This is a great walking trail through Saratoga Spa state park. It was busy when we were there on a Sunday afternoon. Much of this trail is paved but the blue trail is a beautiful forested section with a wetlands overlook. There are some parts of this path that have lots of tree roots & mud; however, it’s very easy to bypass these areas as there are multiple paved paths, roads & picnic areas that traverse through the park. At times the signage is nonexistent and the “start” of this trail was not easy to find, so the AllTrails app was invaluable :)

Beautiful trail that is poorly marked at times. Took a wrong turn on a guess and ended up about 1 mile off the trail at private property. Then used this app and found our way back. Easy trail through woods, wetlands, and more!

Easy. Maybe 3 inclines... a set of stairs... and just be mindful of roots... got lotsa tree roots - easy to trip and actually witnessed a runner fall trying to navigate over them. Other than that - I walked this on a Saturday morning at 930 and my girlfriend and I were alone on the trail except for an occasional runner... quiet

A very fun trail. I’m still very much a novice rider, so I’m not sure if I agree with the “easy” rating as there were some fairly challenging climbs dotted around the trail. Shouldn’t be a problem for someone with more experience though.

This is a nice easy hike. Beautiful wooded area. You see multiple springs along the trail as well. There are a couple spots that would be very muddy . It’s been a very dry summer and so we were able to maneuver around the mud.

Nice easy trail. A pretty bad thunderstorm hit a couple days ago so there were a trees down at various parts of the trail, but otherwise enjoyable. The springs were nice to walk by and let the dog refresh, and was a well marked trail.

A nice hike through the park. Not very scenic, but it does take you past the spring. Lots of variation to the trail. Saw rabbits, chipmunks and a water snake.
