Great trail, pay attention to your map. I was off course several times.

Nice, quiet paved trail perfect for walking or trail running!

Trail would be great if it was marked.
I did not trust the GPS fix and map on my phone. Gave up after 45 minutes. Did not want to get stuck in the woods overnight.
Challenging with a lot of rocks, roots, and washed out trail.

Nice little walking trail. Mix of gravel, soft ground and old wood rail (probably not stroller friendly for those parts). As of today last .5 still closed. Enter from Lake Ave end. Dog found lots to sniff!

Walked this easy flat trail this morning. Little soft under foot in some places, especially when among the tree's. Decent amount of poison ivy growth along the sides of some of the trail so watch your footing. Last half-mile (Meadowbrook Road end) was roped off/closed for improvement work.

Not as hard or tough as some on here say. No inclines. Great walk or run.

Trail is open again, nice walk!

love it! well maintained and not over populated. great for getting in a quick walk or run.

Trail is closed for improvements as of this post. There weren't any signs stating when it would be reopened.

Nice and relaxing paved walk around State Park. Very easy, nothing really exciting though. I like that as long as you stay on the paved path, you aren’t picking ticks off your pup.

Not very scenic but definitely a good running trail for sure.

my friend and I met here as it was about halfway for us, she's in Glens Falls and I'm in Clifton Park. Met on the Meadowbrook end and walked through. Saw some snakes and geese and one other random bird. We enjoyed the trail, it was wet at the beginning for us but it had been raining off and on the past few days.

Loved running and biking in this park when I lived in Saratoga. Participated in several 5k events that also used the trail. There is a organized recreation section to run thorough and also a more nature section. Was also fun to snowshoe. Miss it very much!

We did this trail late fall, so we were not bothered by bugs, but in the lowest area we really tried hard to avoid the mud. The trail has a very special feel because it is very straight and has trees that join at the top so it looks like a tunnel. We enjoyed it!

Definitely not easy to run the full 5.5 mile loop but had a lot of fun. Lots of ups and downs, big rocks, roots, and pieces of trail that get hard to follow. Lots of trail options to branch off if you want. Keep the app with gps signal on to follow the right path. A small adventure not far from town.

We live 5 minutes from this park and use its trails, playgrounds and parks almost every weekend. An amazing, diverse and beautiful park!

Trail not marked well at all. Without the app it would have been impossible to follow. Lots of intersecting bike trails made it difficult. Overall it was a nice hike.

Trails need to be marked better. There I only one sign that indicates it's Bee. Also, it was a very easy hike to me so I'm not sure what the scale is based on when it's labeled as difficult.

Tough and technical.

no matter how much spray we used, we still were attacked by bugs to the point of not wanting to ever go back.
Snakes everywhere! that part was interesting.

Within a few minutes of leaving the Lake Avenue trailhead, just a few miles from the bustle of the Downtown Saratoga Springs, the noise of traffic faded away and we entered a wooded wetland ecosystem. We saw beaver activity, snakes, red-wing blackbirds, and a cedar waxwing as well as evidence of foxes (scat on the trail). No elevation gain to speak of. The areas on either side of the Eastern boardwalk (near Meadowbrook Trail) were very wet and impassable without stepping in 6-10 inches of water and muck. Still worth it.

Way too many mosquitoes and horse flies. I would try this in the fall but not in the warmer months.

Went on a hike here during pouring rain after almost an hour's travel to the location. We were prepared for a tough trek, based on the "hard" rating. We found the trail was actually an easy hike, although over infested with mosquitos. There were many trails, none well marked and hard to follow. After wandering around in the woods for a couple hours, all we wanted to do was go home, we weren't enjoying ourselves. This is rated "hard" if you are mountain biking which we believe is what the trails are meant for with various SMBA trail tags.

Walked in from the Lake Ave. parking lot. The first 1/4 mile of the trail was rather damp as the beavers have dammed up a couple of the small streams. Still, a nice morning for a walk and some bird watching.
