Empire State Trail Section Dedicated in Schuylerville

by Pete Bardunias, President/CEO, the Chamber of Southern Saratoga County

Cyclists will have some great opportunities to ride alongside upstate New York waterways as the Empire State Trail continues to take shape. While the Trail meanders across many inland routes south of Albany, it essentially follows the old Erie and Champlain Canal towpaths wherever possible across the state. A new section was dedicated in Schuylerville just steps from the Schuyler Yacht Basin, the new Gateway Visitor Center (under construction) and the very spot where General Burgoyne’s men lay down their arms in 1777 after the British defeat at Saratoga
