Au Sable Forks

Olympic Byway, State Rt. 9N, in Essex County

in the Town of Jay in Clinton County along the Olympic Trail

At AuSable Forks, the East and West branches of the AuSable River merge to become the AuSable River . For decades, theses streams have been treasured by anglers for their excellent trout fishing, especially fly fishing. The area around AuSable Forks offer multi-seaonal recreation and spectacular scenery as the rivers course through deep pools, rocky riffles, and pockets.

The 170-mile Olympic Scenic Byway route starts near Lake Champlain at the village of Keeseville in the east, moves through the heart of the Adirondack Mountains, and ends near Lake Ontario at Sackets Harbor in the west. As you travel this byway, you’ll experience some of New York State’s most historic and scenic waterways. In the towns, villages, and hamlets along the way, learn about the determination of early settlers to make the most of the natural resources in this often-challenging environment.

Whether you're an armchair sports fan, or have dreams of Olympic-style challenges, you'll find a wide variety of recreation opportunities in every season. Take time to enjoy local events and get to know the women and men who live, work, and take great pride in calling the distinctive Olympic Scenic Byway communities home.
