This service is free of charge, but your own cell phone service provider's use fees will still apply.

Narrated completely by kids...for kids!
Our special thanks to David and Ginger Hildebrand, who kindly allowed us to use selections from their recordings of "The White Cockade" and "The Road to Boston" for this project.
You can now hike the Wilkinson Trail while immersing yourself in tales from the Battles of Saratoga!
These free, downloadable MP3 files range from 3-7 MB. Save them to your favorite MP3 player, and listen to them as you hike the Wilkinson Trail.
Start playing each one at each station on the Wilkinson Trail (gray, plastic marker posts, labeled "Station A", "Station B", etc.), and keep walking as you listen. If you are still listening when you arrive at the next station, you're a fast walker! Just finish listening to the track before you begin playing the next one.
Please use a copy of the Wilkinson Trail Map to better understand the tour sequence. A downloadable copy of this map may be found on our Maps page.
Our special thanks to all who made this MP3 trail possible: Angel Bovee, Thomas Hawn and the New School of Radio and Television (Albany, NY), Deanna Stickles-Bach, Jason Bach, Suzanne Baker, Ben Katagirl, Adam O'Connor, Steven O'Connor, Maggie's Music, Inc. (Hesperus Ensemble, Colonial America album), Plymouth fife and Drum Corps (Honor album).
