Saratoga National Historical Park is ready for winter! Here are the hours, activities, and a special event you can look forward to this season.
Horse-drawn wagon ride at the Frost Faire at Saratoga National Historical Park
The scenic road tour is open for walking and biking from sunrise to sunset, when conditions allow; it is closed to vehicles. Over 10 miles of hiking trails are also open in the park for walking, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing.
The visitor center on Route 32 and 4 in Stillwater remains open from 9am to 5pm throughout the winter, except on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day. This is where you’ll want to go for exhibits, ranger programs, a museum store, a kid’s corner, and more.
Brand new this year is a special pilot program to groom ski trails – find a map at the visitor’s center to find out where these trails are! There is also a pilot program for tubing down the visitor’s center hill.
In addition, there will be winter hikes led by rangers for those of us who would prefer more of a guided tour from the experts.
Finally, the annual Frost Faire will be taking place on Saturday, January 28th, from 11am to 3pm. This is a fun winter festival with horse-drawn wagon rides, sledding and tubing if there’s snow, and more fun winter activities.
Just because it’s winter it doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy the great outdoors at your local park! Bundle up and come see what the Saratoga National Historical Park has to offer!
