Take the time to walk the path on Avenue of the Pines. Take in all the splendor that park has to offer.

We went on the free guided tour given by "Trent," who led us on an hour-long walk into various natural spa sites. We tasted the different waters, and even rinsed our arms, legs and faces!!! It was very informative and fun! A must-do for those seeking to know and experience more about natural springs of Saratoga!

My husband and I travel to Saratoga every year. We always schedule a mineral bath at Roosevelt Spa. It is so relaxing. We're told that there are many health benefits from the baths so that is an added bonus. They are very private as each person has their own room with an oversized tub.

While in Saratoga we had to visit the State Park & see the natural mineral springs. I was a little underimpressed. The park was pretty. The springs were a few points that water was running out of a spout....ok, big deal.....

We saw the Park only by chance as we drove by. We parked and walked a couple of miles through the handsome grounds and monumental buildings - originally constructed as a WPA project about 1930. A map from the Visitors Center in the Administrative Building was helpful (open at 8:00 in the morning). A highlight was the Veil of Springs... More

Great for walking and, if you dare, tasting the mineral waters (not like anything you'd find in a bottle). Don't miss the geyser and the auto museum. Also, great cultural activities throughout the summer.

We are seniors and enjoy riding our bikes; plenty of parking and level areas and a few challenging hills over by the springs. The day was pleasant, dry & sunny in the low 80s; spent an hour riding around; little traffic and delighted by the meandering river and seeing the springs; no fee for bike riders; stopped at the Victoria...

The Spa State Park is one place you don't want to miss .... One of the best is the Mineral Spa Tour....Natural mineral springs and their history was an unexpected treat ...however, YOU MUST GO TO THE VISITORS CENTER IN TOWN... FIRST and get the info on the scheduled tours and the associated brochures. be sure to ask for Trent... More

If you need a little non-horsey time out this is a great spot. It's in the woods, so the trails are great. It's nice and quiet!

A simple walk in the park is a truly beautiful experience. Among the quiet trails through the large magnificent trees, the peaceful feeling takes you out of the day to day world. Most outstanding are the mineral baths at the Roosevelt Baths. They started as a mainstay to the area decades ago and continue to be a treat. Relax in... More
