This loop includes all the main trails. You can add more of the Taber Road Trail, which is the trail that runs down the center and appears as a road on the map but is not open to vehicles. The ~177 acres of land that forms the LeVine Nature Preserve in the Town of Providence has served as a place to understand and appreciate the natural world for generations. For the past 12 years Saratoga PLAN has been honored to care for the property as countless visitors have enjoyed the land by means of its ~3 mile trail system. The preserve is nestled in the foothills of the Adirondack Park, and is rich with native flora & fauna, boasts two bustling creeks, miles of stone walls, and multiple cellar holes for the true nature explorer to discover.

This was not the LeVine trail but a very nice walking trail of nearly 3 miles!

Needs a lot of TLC and not the best choice for a trail run, with all the roots and rocks and overgrown narrow trails with minimal markings.

I can't believe this (and Henning Preserve just down the road) didn't exist yet on AllTrails. We are so lucky to have these pieces of public land right here in Providence. I enjoyed checking out all the different trails, which add up to about 3 miles but require you to double back somewhere. I started going counter-clockwise to do the West Orange Loop, then Yellow Loop, then doubled back to get the West Green Trail, then East Green Trail and finally the East Orange Loop. You'll cross the Joby Creek and walk alongside the Cadman Creek for a good chunk of both Green Trails. I've gone twice now and have never seen another soul. It's so quiet and peaceful, and while a very easy trail if you hike, it still offers some elevation changes and some low rock walls to step over. Bonus points if you can find the old foundations and cellar holes! Thick tree cover in the summer so plan accordingly with dress and light sources. If you go to the official website on the SaratogaPLAN site, you can find a trail map or borrow the nice laminated one from the trail register.
