Info on NER GPX Files Content
The Saratoga Battlefield was the scene of the turning point of the Revolutionary War. British General Burgoyne was marching south to meet up with troops from New York City and Lake Ontario. His goal was to take control of the Lake Champlain-Lake George-Hudson River waterway. Had he been successful, he would have isolated New England from the rest of the colonies and probably won the war.
This short ride segment visits all of the Battlefield stops. Be sure to stop in the Visitor’s Center and see the 20 minute movie about the battle. See the animated LED battle map that shows troop movements. Do not miss all the artifacts and displays and the view with the cannons.
The park service offers a self-guided audio tour on mobile app, to explain the various locations around the battlefield while you are standing there.
