Alder Creek

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

Alder Creek near Kayuta Lake.

Alder Creek is a short drive from Rome and Utica. It is at the intersection of two major highways Routes 28 and 12. Several golf courses are in the area. Nearby Kayuta Lake welcomes boaters and fishermen. Winter sports include snowmobiling, cross country skiing, and snowshoeing.

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.
