rowland hollow creek preserve

The Rowland Hollow Creek Preserve is a ~45 acre preserve with 3/4 mile of trails that meander through a wooded area that includes an overlook of Rowland Hollow Creek.

This preserve is part of an innovative conservation subdivision project in conjunction with the new Meadow Vista Estates development. A wooded trail system invites people to safely explore the preserve while the woodlands protect wildlife habitat and the water quality of Rowland Hollow Creek.

Project partners include Charlew Builders and the City of Saratoga Springs. The Rotary Club of Saratoga Springs provided funding for trail improvements, entryway, and signage built by PLAN staff, volunteers and contractors.
