Central Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 28, in Oneida County

Historic Remsen near Rome and Utica.

Founded in 1795 by Welsh immigrants, Remsen still honors its historic roots at the Remsen Barn Festival of the Arts in late September each year. Nearby is the burial site memorial of the Revolutionary War General, Baron von Steuben, who fought with General Washington at Valley Forge. Historic markers describe the area's settlers. Remsen plays a continuing role in the railroading history of this area. Be sure to visit the historic replica Remsen Depot where you can board Adirondack Scenic Railroad and special excursion trains that run from Utica north to Thendara, that is farther along this byway.

The 153- mile Central Adirondack Trail begins in the east in Glens Falls and ends at the western gateway in Rome on the historic Erie Canal. This crescent shaped route brings you through the foothills and mountains of the south-central Adirondack Park. From the east you pass near scenic Lake George, alongside wild, whitewater sections of the Hudson River, and the shores of Long Lake, Blue Mountain Lake, Raquette Lake, and the Fulton Chain. The entire route features other numerous lakes and mountain streams that are a paddler’s and boater’s paradise. Plan to spend time at the many attractions on the byway including The Hyde Museum in Glens Falls, the world famous Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake, and the Arts Center in Old Forge. Meet local artisans and crafts makers all along the byway, and plan to visit historic Fort Stanwix and The Erie Canal Village in Rome.
