What to Expect

The largest preserve in the care of Saratoga PLAN, the Hennig Preserve is the perfect site for nature-lovers, skiiers, and hikers alike. The massive preserve was once used for logging, maple syrup production, and subsistence farming before being generously donated by the Hennigs. Since its opening to the public, the preserve has added 476 acres of beautiful woodland. Despite its conversion to a natural area, you can still find remnants of history scattered throughout the Hennig Preserve's acreage! Keep an eye out for cellar holes, wells, and other structures forgotten by time.
