Skidmore North Woods

At the north end of the Town of Saratoga NY there is 250 acres with a great trail system for mini- adventures. This area includes swamps, ponds, trees and fields. An easy walk from town up North Broadway will give you access to miles of trails. The trails start out on top of the hill and descend into the valley. There are railroad tracks that border the Northwoods on the north side. Parking is available on campus. Walking from town is preferred.
