Things To Do > Saratoga Battlefield Tour Road
The Saratoga Battlefield opens to the public on May 1st for the 2013 season!
If anyone is looking for an enjoyable bike ride, the Saratoga Battlefield is a great place to go. There is a 10-mile loop that circles around the Saratoga National Historic Park. The loop is a bit hilly, but there are opportunities for rest as there are a number of places to stop and see the historic sites of the Battle at Saratoga.
On a nice day, it is a great place to pack a picnic and go to enjoy the views of the Hudson River valley along the Battlefield trail.
The entire tour road is paved, and though many people choose to see the Battlefield by bike, others opt to drive the 10 miles to see the sites. Helmets are required for all children under 15 riding a bike.
The Battlefield tour road is open May 1st through October 31st annually. Entrance fees are valid for 7 days, and cost $5 per car, $3 per bike, $3 per hike, or pay $10 for a pass for the whole year. Alternately, buy an "America the Beautiful" Pass from the National Park Service's National Pass System: $80 for a year for anyone, $10 for a lifetime for seniors 62+, no charge for lifetime for citizens with proof of permanent disability.
