Zim Smith Trail
The Zim Smith Trail is the main multi-use trail of a network of trails in Saratoga County, New York. Extending nine miles, it connects the towns of Halfmoon, Clifton Park, Round Lake Village, Malta and Ballston Spa. It is the only trail in New York state to be designated a national recreation trail by the U.S. Department of Interior and National Park Service.
The trail starts at Oak Street in Ballston Spa and runs through Malta's Shenantaha Creek Park. From there the trail passes under Interstate 87, the Adirondack Northway, and brings you through the village of Round Lake. From Round Lake Village the trail crosses over U.S. Route 9 and through a portion of the towns of Clifton Park and Halfmoon. As of 2012 it is now being extended to the village of Mechanicville.
The Zim Smith Trail is named after Lt. Col. Zimri "Zim" Smith, USAF (Ret)  who died in 1994. Zim was active in historic preservation in Saratoga Springs and founded Friends of Saratoga Battlefield.
