Fodor's Expert Review Black River Trail Scenic Byway
The 111-mi trail traces the western extremity of the Adirondacks and leads from Rome, New York in the south nearly to Canada in the north. This is a breathtaking area of the park, especially when the leaves are changing. Along the way are fun stops at dairies, picnic areas, museums, and maple-syrup producers. Beware the winter, though, as the trail leads through the Tug Hill Plateau before ending at Ogdensburg. The plateau gets foot upon foot of snow in the winter. –Tip: Bring along a map of the area, as there are many side roads, leading to a sometimes-confusing trek.
