Countywide trails committee

This committee consists of representatives of user groups (horse riders, snowmobilers, runners, walkers, bicyclists, cross-country skiers, etc.) who meet regularly with County planners and administrators to advance the trail network proposed in the Saratoga County Green Infrastructure Plan. The committee is convened by PLAN and currently headed by Charlie Dake, a Saratoga PLAN board member.

The Countywide Trails Committee focuses on trail systems that extend beyond municipal boundaries and have the potential for serving as alternative transportation centers as well as providing quality recreational experiences. The committee recognizes that not every section of every trail will be appropriate for every user group and appreciates the input of all user groups.

The public is welcome to attend the meetings, held quarterly at the County office building in Ballston Spa. Meeting announcements and minutes are posted regularly. To receive periodic trails news by email send us your email address.

If you have priorities for your community, please attend the meeting and share! If you are unable to attend, please send updates to Saratoga PLAN. Thank you. To receive notifications about upcoming meetings, please email Saratoga PLAN at

Also, your participation is welcome in the Capital District Trails Plan, sponsored by the Capital District Transportation Committee (CDTC).  Learn more.
