“An easy rail-trail route that travels through scenic countryside.”

The Oswego County Trail is a point-to-point route that follows an abandoned right-of-way of the old New York Ontario & Western Railroad between Cleveland and Fulton. The trail is actually in two segments, divided by Interstate 81 in the village of Central Square.
The trail is a straightforward route without much meandering. It passes through scenic countryside and hardwood forests. Occasionally, the trail surface is rough and rutted.
Many of the railroad bridges have been preserved and resurfaced as crossings.
This is a multi-use route open to hikers, mountain bikers, ATVs, and snowmobiles.
