Saratoga National Golf Club Trails


City of Saratoga Springs

  • South Trail
  • Length:  1/2 mile
  • Scenery: Lake
  • Terrain: Wood Chips

Trip Tip: Viewing Platform

The South Trail leads you to a viewing platform on the northern shoreline of Lake Lonely.  From the parking area the trail goes to the left and has a bridge over Bog Meadow Brook.  The platform is a great spot for a picnic or to sit and enjoy the view of the lake.

  • West Trail
  • Length: 2 miles
  • Scenery: Golf Course, Trees
  • Terrain: Wet

Trip Tip: Wear boots/heavy shoes

The West trail starts out on the paved path along the access road to the clubhouse.  When the paved path veers away from the road look for the small nature trail signs straight ahead.  Follow the signs along the road and back onto the paved path about a half-mile ahead.  Continue to follow the nature trail signs through the golf course and into the woods on the northwest edge of the golf course.  The trail ends as you approach I-87.

These trails were developed cooperatively between the Open Space Project, The Land Trust of Saratoga and Saratoga National Golf Club.  The Open Space Project and The Land Trust of Saratoga have combined efforts and are now one organization, called Saratoga PLAN - preserving land and nature. Both trails are a pleasant walk through surrounding wetlands with sounds of nature. A map of the trail system can be found at the trailhead parking area off of Rte 9P.  Be careful not to pinch your fingers when opening the gate to access the trails. Go to for more information on preserving open space in our community.
