Plan an Adventure at the New Tupelo Community Forest
Saratoga County is home to a variety of parks, preserves, and trails, and now, there is a new property to explore in Greenfield Center called the Tupelo Community Forest. This is a 145-acre forest with 3 miles of trails that are open to the public for mountain biking, hiking, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing.
The Tupelo Community Forest was created thanks to the efforts of a local family and Wilderness Property Management, and both Saratoga PLAN and the Saratoga Mountain Bike Association will be its stewards. Located at 250 Greene Road, the forest is open daily from dawn to 10pm, and there is a parking area at the trailhead.
