Corinth, Hadley, Lake Luzerne, Thurman, Warrensburg, Stony Creek, Riparius, Chestertown, North Creek — If you’re planning your first visit to the Saratoga area, your fifth, or even your fiftieth, you may have not heard of these small communities that are off-the-beaten path. A newly created map of the Corridor is hoping to change all that.
Planning your day trip is easy!
The map provides readers with travel times and detailed visual and
written descriptions along the 60-mile route from Saratoga to North
Creek. Pam Morin, a Warren County Department employee told the Troy Record
that she got an idea for the map
after seeing a similar one designed to promote tourism in the Hudson
The history of the area can be seen throughout the region at sites and interpretive exhibits highlighted in the Corridor map, beginning with the area’s origin as Native American hunting grounds continuing on through conflicts such as the French and Indian War, and continuing with the Corridor’s natural channels of commerce. From soldiers utilizing trail systems, to a rail system developed by W.C. Durant in the late 19th century, you’ll follow a natural path that has led tourists to the Adirondacks year after year.
