Battenkill State Forest


This 983-acre mixed forest makes for an excellent day adventure from the Capital/Saratoga Region. The hike begins roughly 30 miles east of Saratoga Springs. Meandering along Snake Ridge, the trail provides an opportunity to explore the Battenkill State Forest. The trail leads to Peaked Rock at 1100 feet above the Battenkill River. Recently there has been some dispute over the ownership of the actual rock. Vermont lies just on the other side of the range. This moderate hike yields rewarding views of Washington County and beyond.
