406 State Route 3, Plattsburgh, NY 12901(518) 561-5000
Phase 1 of the Saranac River Trail (SRT) runs for 1.5 miles through the City of Plattsburgh. The Trail opened in May 2012 to walkers, runners, strollers, rollerbladers, anglers, tourists, residents, historians, and people who welcome the opportunity to watch and listen to the river.
Saranac River is the heart of the City of Plattsburgh and the surrounding region, winding down from the foothills of the Adirondacks to Lake Champlain. The multi-use Saranac River Trail is a three-way partnership among the City of Plattsburgh, State University of New York College at Plattsburgh and a citizens advisory committee (now formalized as Friends of Saranac River Trail, Inc.) Its construction has been made possible with funding and in-kind services from New York State, (including the Department of Transportation), the City of Plattsburgh, SUNY and SUNY Plattsburgh, several grants from Lake Champlain Basin Program, as well as donations and support from individuals, volunteers, and groups including Sunrise Rotary.
