What You Can Expect

Saratoga and North Creek Scenic Train Ride

Saratoga and North Creek Scenic Train Ride

In 1864, the New York Times described the Adirondacks as 'a tract of country fitted to make a Central Park for the world.' In the warmer months, the Adirondack Mountains transforms into a playground of outdoor fun. Discover what one of America's largest parks has to offer via the Saratoga and North Creek Railway.

This heritage railroad travels along the upper Hudson River through the North Country of upstate New York. Its seven stops connect you to some of what Adirondack Park's 6 million acres (2 million hectares) have to offer including wonderful locations for kayaking, canoeing, fly fishing and hiking.

With your train ticket, you have several options that make your planning easy. No matter what direction you come from, expect comfortable seats in coach class or upgrade for a luxurious dome car. (See below for more info.)

Traveling for just the day? Book a 2-hour ticket one way from either Saratoga Springs or North Creek station, or select a 4-hour round-trip ticket. Planning an overnight trip?  Look under the Important Info tab for special instructions.

If you depart from Saratoga, you'll have time to explore the North Creek area during a 3-hour afternoon layover. At the depot, take the free shuttle that takes you to local attractions such as the Garnet Mines to ogle giant crystals, Gore Mountain for mountain biking, or around town to discover experiences like the local farmers' market open from June to October. (All activities are at your own expense).

Or, begin in North Creek and arrive in Saratoga in time for dinner, then spend the night before the return trip the following morning. Take advantage of the Saratoga Spa State Park, Saratoga Performing Arts Center, Saratoga Casino and Raceway and more.
