"According to Saratoga P.L.A.N. (Preserving Land and Nature), the paved trail is intended to “provide safe, off-road pedestrian, bicycle and handicapped accessible access from downtown Saratoga Springs to Weibel Road.” It will link downtown to the commercial area surrounding Wilton Mall."

"Intended" is the key word. At present it does not do this and it will be years before this happens. P.L.A.N. has all good 'plans' and NO maintenance plans...all 'feel good' plans and no follow up on anything ....
