The outdoors in Saratoga County is a great way to socially distance and have fun


Saratoga County has many options to enjoy the outdoors, while still enabling you to socially distance. 

 

Sacandaga River

Whitewater rafting on the Sacandaga River, in Saratoga County, is a great workout and a great way to enjoy the outdoors. Visitors who can manage the rapids alone can make this a fun activity for the full family to ensure social distancing. If rafting is too extreme, kayaking on the Great Sacandaga Reservoir is another option.

Saratoga National Historic Park

This 10 mile tour across 3000 acres of the national park is where the American Revolution is said to have occurred. The historic tour has great views of the Hudson and takes you back to a time some 200 years ago. The views have remained as pristine. Minus the gore of the war.

Hadley Mountain Trail

This trail is a bit of a challenge with an elevation gain of 476m but the views from the top promise to be worth it. Check to see if the Fire Tower is open. This is where officials used to spot forest fires in the 1900s.
