Winter Has Arrived

Snow is creeping into the Adirondack Coastal region. I hope you have all of your winter gear ready!

What is your favorite place on the Adirondack coast to go Snowshoeing, hiking, or cross country skiing?

  1. A) Point-au-Roche State Park Beach – it’s not open during the winter, but there are no gates and you can park in the parking lot and snowshoe/cross country ski out to the frozen lake shore… very beautiful!

    B) Behind the SUNY Plattsburgh Field House at Plattsburgh State – Rugar Woods is open all year round and has miles of rugged and flat paths for mountain biking, walking/running, snowshoeing and cross country skiing. If anybody needs more information, they can call (518) 564-3060 – the Plattsburgh State Field House Information Line.

    Here is the link for the Rugar Woods 10 Mile long Cross Country Ski Course:

    C) The Terry James Gordon Recreational Path that runs along the length of the Western edge of Plattsburgh Bay (running between the US Oval, the train tracks, and Lake Champlain itself). You get great views, especially at sunrise, of the beautiful historic Old Base/US Oval, the Point – Plattsburgh’s oldest neighborhood, and of both the Adirondack and Green Mountains.

    Parking & Trail Access:

    To reach the northern endpoint from I-87, take Exit 36 and follow State Route 22 for about 2.5 miles until you reach a fork. Take the right fork at South Peru Street and go about 0.8 mile to U.S. Route 9. Follow Route 9 north about 0.5 mile. Turn right onto Hamilton Street and follow it for two blocks. The trail begins on your right, with a few street parking spots at the trailhead.
