Enjoy the beautiful trails and relax with a picnic beside the pond.

Explore the trails at Camp Saratoga which operated as a boy scout camp from 1930 to 2001 when it became part of the Wilton Wildlife Preserve & Park. Approximately 25 acres of the 310-acre camp is owned by the Town of Wilton. New York State owns the remaining 285 acres.

The property encompasses a diversity of ecosystems including woodlands, wetlands, open areas, streams, and a pond.

Once you walk the numerous well marked trails enjoy a picnic at Delegan Pond where you may spot a great blue heron, belted kingfisher, or the occasional beaver.

If you would like to go when the Fire Tower is accessible check the schedule here: http://townofwilton.com/visitors/cornell-hill-fire-tower/cornell-hill-fire-tower-schedule/

A printable map can be found here: http://www.wiltonpreserve.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/CampSaratoga_Opdahl_0812.pdf

If you enjoy Geocaching there are plenty of caches hidden among the park.

I hike to push my limits both mentally and physically, take in the beauty of the great outdoors, and just to get away from it all. Every chance I get you will find me in the mountains, on a kayak or ending my day by the campfire!
