The interpretive devices, along the Riverwalk Sensory Trail, are called Tourmates and were made possible through funding from: Hudson River Foundation, Lakes to Locks Passage Scenic Byway, a Federal Highway Administration’s National Scenic Byway Program. There are 16 stories available that were compiled with the help from National Park staff from the Saratoga National Historical Park.
This page simulates your standing in front of one of the audio devices along the trail. From here you'll be able to either listen to an audio or read the text of the stories you’d hear by pressing a button and turning the crank.
From the map below determine which tourmate you are standing by and select that device. You will then be brought to a page where the stories on that unit are available to you.
Sixteen scripts were written for the Tour-Mate Eco Boxes. Hudson Crossing Park held a contest to discover "the voices" for the recordings. In addition to local media we employed "Voices for All" to help send our message across the nation. As a result we had 28 entrants from 14 different states.
Voices of the Park: Coralie Davis, Tej Singh, Sam Aldrich, Anthony Cardenas, and Thomas Robinson
Thank You! to all who helped us with this project.
