completed today with family. Great trail except for the illegal dumping that's going on there. Random trash piles every where. I wish that I could catch them in the act.

Easy trail with a great view of the river and surrounding area. The right side butts up against Fort Drum, so stay away from the fence itself. Only minor 'hills' and the path is very well marked. There are certain spots you can walk onto the rocks that line the river, but be cautious, the river itself is very fast moving.

Great trail, very easy, and easy to find. Follows the river for miles. Not very hilly, couple little ones. This is fun for the whole family. Lots of views and spots to fish from. At one point you follow the fence line of Ft Drum and lots of signs that seem like they really don't want you to walk near there. But overall, this is a fun walk for any age.
