Coopers Cave & Walking Trail

Central Adirondack Trail, U.S. Highway 9, near Glens Falls in Warren County

View the cave in the Hudson River channel on which James Fenimore Cooper based the fictional cave in The Last of the Mohicans.

Handicapped accessible sidewalk provides access from a small parking area to a scenic overlook of the Hudson River and of the cave area. There is not a direct stairway from the Rt 9, Main Street bridge down to the overlook. Access is via River Street at the south end of the bridge, west side. Take River Street west a short distance, follow the signs to an access road leading to the parking area under the bridge. The new, circular overlook has interpretive panels and benches.
