Maple City Trail Description

Maple City Trail offers a short, but scenic route through Ogdensburg in northern New York. It begins at the city's visitor center on the south bank of the St. Lawrence River, which separates the state from Canada. From there, the paved trail heads south, hugging the Oswegatchie River on one side and a row of beautiful mature trees on the other.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at the Ogdensburg Visitors Center (100 Riverside Avenue).

Maple City Trail Reviews

Short but nice trail.

Not sure why the map shows the trail going where it goes. That's not the route of the Maple City Trail. Look instead on the opposite side of the Oswegatchie River where you will see a trail marked "Maple City Trail". That's the rail-trail. What you see on the map may or may not be a trail, but it's definitely not a trail-trail.

Anyway, all that aside, the trail follows the route of the DeKalb Branch of the New York York Central. It came off the current CSX line in a wye, and headed straight up to Heuvelton where it curved through the town, then straight up to Ogdensburg. Parts of the railbed are kept open by private landowners, some of whom don't post the property.

The rail-trail itself is marked, paved, and goes from the middle of the city to the first bridge over the Oswegatchie. It's a nice bicycle ride, if rather short. It's more appropriate for walkers, which it sees plenty of. There are a few park benches along the way to enjoy a view of the river.
