Burl Trail

Thanks to a collaborated effort between the local “grass-roots” organization, Friends of the Kayaderosseras, and New York State Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation this trail now exists.  A highly energetic and dedicated group of volunteers successfully constructed a level, wood chip trail on a rainy day in late April 2005.  The group trimmed back trees, tall grass and shoveled load after load of wood chips into wheelbarrows, despite the muddy conditions.

Trip Tip: New as of April 2005

Named for the knotty growth on a tree at the trailhead, The Burl Trail is a one-mile loop along the Kayaderosseras Creek.  The 345-acre parcel of land that the trial is on was recently acquired by New York State and is now part of Saratoga Spa State Park.  A new access point, Gray’s Crossing, to the Kayaderosseras Creek is located at this destination.

Join Friends of the Kayaderosseras, and get involved in future events and programs.
