Oswego County Trail

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The Oswego County Trail follows an abandoned right-of-way of the old New York Ontario & Western Railroad between Cleveland and Fulton. The trail passes among scenic countryside on a sometimes rough surface. Many of the railroad bridges have been preserved and resurfaced as crossings. ATVs and snowmobiles use the trail, as do mountain bikers and hikers.

The trail is actually in two segments, divided by Interstate 81 in the village of Central Square. From Maple Avenue the Fulton side runs for about 10 miles to just west of I-81, while the Cleveland side runs about 16 miles to Hallenbeck Road.

To navigate around I-81 heading eastbound, go north on US 11, west on SR 49 (East Ave.), and south on CR 37 (Swamp Rd.). Look for the trail access again on the left. To navigate around I-81 westbound, go north on CR 37 (Swamp Rd.), east on SR 49 (East Ave.), then south on US 11. Look for the trail access on the right, past the Post Office.
