For the hearty adventurer, we invite you to kayak on the Esopus Creek and Hudson River or enjoy a hike in many of our wonderful parks, including the trail to the historic Saugerties Lighthouse. If you love sports, we have you covered year-round with indoor ice skating and ice hockey at the Kiwanis Ice Arena. You can also stay active at our soccer fields, tennis courts, baseball and softball fields, all located at the Cantine Veterans Memorial Complex. While there, catch a game with our own collegiate baseball team, The Saugerties Stallions. Travel along our scenic bike routes throughout the town and village to take in some of our local history.
