The Saranac River Trail is for biking, walking, running, blading, boarding, and sitting on the benches to take in the beauty and history of the River and Plattsburgh. The Trail follows the river through the City of Plattsburgh weaving its way across the campus of SUNY Plattsburgh and along Pine Street. Phase 2 of the TrailI, currently under construction (completion planned for 2017), will add a new bridge across the river to Durkee Street as well as a new bridge at Saranac Street (both bridges will be only for pedestrian and bikes). A spur will connect from the Saranac Street Bridge to Stafford Middle School.
Along the trail and nearby streets, you’ll find major points of interest - some are from Plattsburgh’s historic past, and others are part of its dynamic present and future. What are they? The app provides answers for you. Are you worried about getting lost? Have no fear: the Saranac River Trail app will help you find your way with maps for walking or driving.
If you are planning a trip to Plattsburgh to visit the Trail, use the built-in iOS Maps app to get a route from far away. Amtrak and Greyhound serve the City. From Montréal in the north, Amtrak can get you to the Saranac River Trail and back again in a single day trip. From the south (Albany or New York City, for instance), the Amtrak schedule can give you a good weekend or three-day visit. The Amtrak station is right on the Trail, and restaurants downtown are within an easy half-mile walk. Accommodations at hotels are about two miles from the station; taxis meet the trains.
Saranac River Trail app is a project of Friends of Saranac River Trail, Inc., a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation chartered in the State of New York.
The app now includes the latest updates on the Webb Island bridge. Tap the Info button at the bottom of the screen for updates.
