National Historic Trails Program
Love of America and dedication to our country depend upon an understanding of appreciation for the ideals, principles and traditions that have made this country strong. The Historic Trails Program of the Boy Scouts of America encourages Scout units to foster this understanding and appreciation. It does so in the context of Scouting, a program which itself helps to instill these ideals, principles, and traditions through personal fitness, self-reliance, teamwork, leadership skills, knowledge of local history and tradition, and a practical understanding of conservation.
Saratoga National Battlefield
The Saratoga National Historical Park and the Twin Rivers Council Boy Scouts of America invite you to hike and explore the historic Saratoga Battlefield, site of the turning point of the American Revolution. Opened in 1987, the Wilkinson Trail and the accompanying Scout Annex Trail are part of the National Recreation Trails system of the National Park Service and the Historic Trails program of the Boy Scouts of America.
