new trails update


Prior to opening to the public, two new Saratoga PLAN trails in the Town of Galway are getting a good dose of TLC this fall: Barkersville Trails, in the hamlet of Barkersville, and Glowegee Creek North and South Trails.


The winding Barkersville trail system was previously grounds for sled-dog training and is a now-conserved 168 acre area. After a season of trail development, from scouting to clearing to trail marking, Barkersville Trails awaits a bridge installation and kiosk information.


Glowegee Creek Trails will connect a northern entrance on Old Mill Road to a southern entrance on Route 45. The trail crosses three parcels of conserved land thick with hemlocks, ferns, and wildflowers and winds alongside Glowegee Creek for a portion of the way. The South entrance parking lot awaits a final trash haul, kiosk, and parking lot access.

Both Barkersville and Glowegee Creek locations are awaiting beautiful entry way signage.

    Was unable to find where this trail is located. Is there an online trail map? Looks great. Thanks.
