Boonville

Central Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 12 and State Rt. 46, in Oneida County

Historic Boonville in the Tug Hill, Black River area.

Nestled between the Mohawk and Black Rivers on the southeastern portion of the Tug Hill Plateau and in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains. Hundreds of miles of groomed snowmobile trails are maintained by area snowmobile clubs and Boonville’s trail system connects with neighboring communities, making it possible to travel from the western edge of Tug Hill to the Old Forge area in the Adirondacks.

There also are over 30 miles (50km) of professionally groomed cross-country ski trails. These trails follow the picturesque Boonville Gorge and are free and open to the public. The same trails are used for hiking, biking and other activities during the summer months. If you're an Alpine skier, you'll have your choice of three top-notch ski areas within a half hour drive.

The many friendly communities like this one along the Central Adirondack Trail Scenic Byway provide the opportunity for an enjoyable walk, refreshment, and to learn more about the region. The 153-mile Central Adirondack Trail forms the shape of a crescent, originating in the fertile lowland areas surrounding the cities of Glens Falls and Rome, and winding through the south-central portion of the Adirondack Park. The Hudson River on the eastern end and the Erie Canal on the west are the gateways to many scenic lakes and mountain streams that are the distinguishing geographic features along much of this scenic byway.
