Town of Malone

Adirondack Trail, in Franklin County

The Town of Malone includes the village of Malone, county seat of Franklin County, just a few miles from the Canadian border, and the northern terminus of the Adirondack Trail Scenic Byway

Geographically, the Town of Malone is on the Northern or Laurentian Plateau of the St. Lawrence with Canada to the immediate North and the Adirondack Mountains to the immediate South.

The Franklin County Fair has been held here every year since 1850 and is one of the largest fairs in New York State. The Fairgrounds are home not only to the largest summer event in the North Country but also the largest winter event, the annual Rock Maple snowmobile competition. Snowmobiling is a major winter activity with many trails available including an abandoned railroad spur line.

Summer activities include the Hendrickson Hatch Fly Fishing tournament on the Salmon River. From mid-September through early December, Canada geese and snow geese gather by the thousands on Rotary Lake on their way South.
