Saratoga Siege Trail(Village of Victory)

Got out for a short walk at Saratoga Plan's Siege Trail, located in the village of Victory, just south of Schuylerville after work today.  Parking is at the General Philip Schuyler House along Route 4. 
 I took a few minutes to explore the yard and foot paths around the house, which was built all the way back in 1777.
 The grass and trees are beginning to turn green, as we are socked in with clouds and showers for the third straight day.
 After wandering the grounds of the Schuyler House, I crossed Route 4 to gain access to the Seige Trail.  A wooden fence and crushed stone make for a very pleasant walk.
 The first views of Fish Creek, down the steep slopes from the trail.
 Fish Creek, quietly meandering along.
The trail runs for just over a half mile one way, with just a little elevation gain.
 It was a cool early May weekday, meaning I was the only person on the trail.
 The woods are really starting to green up.
There are several informative signs along the way, making for an interesting historical walk.
Walked a little over a mile total under mostly cloudy conditions.
