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. Begin your visit at the Visitor Center, where you can pick up a park map & brochure and pay your entrance fee. The Visitor Center also has restrooms, a book and gift shop, 20-minute orientation film, fiber-optic light map, timeline display, and artifact display.

Nice park for hiking with varied terrain. The trail needed better marking in a couple of areas but for the most part, map and markings are easy to follow for first timers. There is plenty to keep you interested. I would go back.

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.

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.
