Quarry Park Master Plan Development

The City of Saratoga recently purchased 64-acre Quarry Property located on Highway 9 (Congress Springs Road) near the Historic Saratoga Village and Hakone Gardens. A community planning process to create a vision that will guide the development of the new Saratoga Quarry Park is currently in progress.

Trail Maps

          Development of a city-wide trail system is a long process. Trail easements are acquired piece by piece and many years may pass until a continuous trail is constructed. Long-term plans for trail system and bicycle lanes in Saratoga are part of the General Plan including Existing and Proposed Trail Map and Existing and Planned Bicycle Facilities

        Many trails have been developed over years and are available for pedestrians' and equestrians' enjoyment. Several individual trail maps for trails and pathways users are available for download or pick-up at City Hall. Please refer to the trail map descriptions below or use the City Trails Map to find the areas shown on the individual trail maps. Additional trails will be added to the trail maps as they are developed.
