Welcome to the Town of Hadley

Hadley is a small town (approximately 2000 residents) located in the Adirondack Park. We are the northernmost town in Saratoga County. We believe our town is a beautiful place to raise a family and a great place to visit while enjoying nature, friends and families. We are proud of our 2 town parks, both of which can be used for family gatherings, weddings, relaxation or just a place to bring yourself and the kids for a walk or to play. In the Spring of 2007, we upgraded our baseball fields in the Sam Smead Memorial Park by grating the fields and creating clay infields. The baseball & softball enthusiasts took full advantage of these upgrades. A 2-day tournament held in August collected items and money for our troops overseas. Some of the money raised was also donated to the Hadley-Luzerne Scholarship Fund. The tournament was held in memory of Steve Madison, a young soldier from Corinth (our neighboring town) who made the ultimate sacrifice.


We also pride ourselves with some walking trails along the Hudson & Sacandaga Rivers where you will find a canoe takeout on the Hudson while enjoying the peace and serenity of nature. You can also enjoy watching the rafters and kayakers at Dean Mountain Whitewater Park along the Sacandaga River which we consider the best whitewater in New York Sate. For the avid or average hiker, Hadley Mountain offers a steady moderate 1.8 mile climb and is located about 8 miles from the center of town on Tower Road and when you reach the summit you will be rewarded with a breathtaking view of the mountains and the restored Hadley Fire Tower.

Hadley is also home to the historic 1885 Bow Bridge which was just renovated and with its opening has reconnected the northern and southern parts of the town. You can also enjoy the Bend of the River 9-hole golf course which is just one mile from the Bow Bridge. Beneath the Bow Bridge in the Sacandaga River a rodeo hole has been started which will provide the avid kayaker a place to perform whitewater tricks. You can also take the family to enjoy a ride down the great Sacandaga River in a raft or go tubing. When traveling to the intake site you will see the Stewarts pond reservoir and the Stewarts dam. This reservoir has a day use park and receives its water from the EJ West hydro plant where we believe is the largest earthen dam in New York State which is the Conklinville dam. Directly above the Conklinville dam you will find a convenient pullover spot called the overlook where you can enjoy another breathtaking view of the Great Sacandaga Lake and Stewarts Pond. 

Rockwell FallsOn Hadley's eastern border is the mighty Hudson River which we share with the Town of Lake Luzerne. Lake Luzerne is home to the Hadley-Luzerne School system. The Bridge of Hope proudly lined with American Flags and located at Rockwell Falls carves out the narrowest point in the Hudson River. On the opposite side of the bridge you can view the confluence of "WHERE FRIENDS AND RIVERS MEET" with the mighty Sacandaga River. We hope that you will visit Hadley and witness the beauty that we are surrounded by and thank you for viewing our website.
