Saratoga Greenbelt Trail
The Saratoga Greenbelt Trail (SGT) is a planned 24-mile shared use path that will form a continuous loop providing pedestrian and bicycle connections across the city of Saratoga Springs, NY. This trail will serve as the foundation for the City’s active mobility system, and connect our residential neighborhoods to downtown.
In 2014, the City Council unanimously approved the Saratoga Springs Greenbelt Trail Feasibility Study. This well-conceived plan documents the vision and the proposed, in-progress, and existing route through the City, the Town of Wilton, and the Town of Greenfield. On June 17th of 2020, City Council adopted an updated map to reflect additions to the trail system as well as realignments of its path.

Saratoga Greenbelt Trail - Downtown Connector
The City of Saratoga Springs began construction of a 1.66 mile urban section of the Saratoga Greenbelt Trail starting in late April of 2022 with construction planned to be completed in the late fall of 2022. The new multi-use trail starts at the corner of Lake Avenue and High Rock Avenue extending up High Rock Avenue to Excelsior Avenue and terminating at the Route 50 bridge over I-87 at exit 15. The project will include a multi-use trail on one side of High Rock Avenue and Excelsior Avenue. The trail will replace the existing sidewalk with a 10 foot multi-use trail. On the opposite side of the street, the project will complete missing sidewalk segments to create a continuous pedestrian path. The Saratoga Greenbelt Downtown Connector Trail project’s final engineered design has been approved by the NYS Department of Transportation.
