Skidmore's North Woods

Skidmore College owns a unique and valuable resource in its North Woods, a regional treasure of flora and fauna in an interesting complex of ecosystems. The North Woods comprises approximately 150 acres and is used by Skidmore and the Saratoga community alike. The woods are a place where people can connect with nature through meditation, cross-country skiing, walking, hiking and running; they also serve as Skidmore’s outdoor laboratory. More than 30 courses across the college rely on the North Woods, and numerous research projects are based in the North Woods each year.

Please explore the website to learn more about the history and ecology of the North Woods, as well as past and current projects of the North Woods stewards and rules and guidelines for use of the North Woods.

Everyone has a favorite nook or cranny. Individuals have formed havens and hideouts in our small forest for more than 50 years. They lie tucked inside our beautiful North Woods.
