Saratoga Spa was developed as a health spa and features miles and miles of opportunities to walk, but very few of the paths lead through natural areas. There are some short trails through the woods, and, of course, the mineral water springs point to the interesting geology of the park. The gentle terrain offers picnic areas and shady streamside trails, suitable for the nature-lover or the casual walker, as well as certified running courses. Winter activities include cross-country skiing on approximately 12 miles of trails, ice skating, ice hockey.
