Stark's Knob Park and Trail

Schuylerville, NY 12871

Named after Revolutionary War General John Stark, is one of America's oldest science parks.

It is a 460 million year old site created by an eruption of volcanic basalt in a pillow-like formation in the sea somewhere in the area of where the State of Connecticut is located today. Small fossil remains of prehistoric sea creatures have been found at the site and studied by geologists from all over the world. During the American Revolution, General Stark placed his cannon her to block Burgoyne's retreat after the Battles of Saratoga. This site is owned and operated by the New York State Museum and is open daily to the public. Contact for additional information. Parking for the site is south of the Village of Schuylerville on Routes 4 & 32 at the intersection of Starks Knob Road.
