Trails and Recreation

Pitney Meadows Community Farms' 166 acres encompass farm fields, forests, wetlands, springs and Geyser Creek access. A comprehensive trail plan was designed to promote access for recreation on the farm. It currently includes trails for walking, biking, birding, and future designs are under way to incorporate fishing access points, educational signage designating points of interest and wildlife viewing opportunities. The system is designed to connect to and incorporate the Saratoga Greenbelt Trail connecting the western neighborhoods to the Railroad Run trail, downtown Saratoga Springs and the State Park. The trails will also emphasize the farming projects at the Farm.

We currently have walking trail loops completed around our agriculture fields and adjacent to West Avenue. The smaller loop is approximately 0.5 miles, while the larger loop stretches 1.7 miles. 

In 2021, our trails were dedicated in honor of Michael Pitney. A kiosk was constructed in his honor, complete with a map of the farm complex and trails, and a place to sit and take in the sights and sounds of the farm.

The Michael Pitney Trail was designed and constructed with the generous support of the following:
