Length: 4.1 mi • Est. 1 h 41 m
The Bog Meadow Trail is two miles long with designated parking areas on each end. The Trail was developed in 1993 by the Saratoga Springs Open Space Project (now Saratoga PLAN) in cooperation with the City of Saratoga Springs. The path travels along an abandoned railroad that once connected the city to various locations throughout the Northeast. The Meadowbrook Preserve, which encompasses 174 acres of wetlands and woods, surrounds the trail, working to protect the watershed where maple, ferns, meadowsweet, and evergreens are commonly found. The majority of the Meadowbrook Preserve was donated to the Saratoga Land Conservancy (now Saratoga PLAN) back in 1988 by the Anderson family, with an additional parcel donated to PLAN in 2006 by Belmonte Builders and Bonacio Construction.Show more

With health and recreation as its major thrust, Saratoga Spa State Park offers miles of multiuse trails over a wide variety of terrain throughout the park. There are more than 12 miles of trails suitable for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. This guide will help you explore the Saratoga Spa State Park. I've tried to cover all the major baths, pools, trails, and sites within the park. Please check the links attached to this guide to find out more about the mineral bath offerings in the area as well as how to make reservations for the Gideon Hotel. Saratoga Springs is world renowned for its mineral baths and spring water. It's not often you find mineral springs erupting from the ground in Upstate NY.Show more
