Felts Mills

Olympic Byway, State Rt. 3, in Jefferson County

Hamlet of Felts Mills on the Black River east of Watertown near Lake Ontario.

Like other Black River communities, Felts Mills provides opportunities to enjoy the beautiful, scenic river, here along an abandoned railroad bed.

Felts Mills Creek traverses under a bridge crossing Route 3 in the hamlet to the Black River and through a forest.  It is classified as a stocked brook trout stream, and you can access it for fishing from a public site. 

Felts Mills Cemetery, located on the South side of Route 3, is a great place to explore the historic roots of the community. 

The 170-mile Olympic Trail route starts near the shore of Lake Champlain at Keeseville on the east end, and near the shore of Lake Ontario by Sackets Harbor and Watertown on the west. From those two great water bodies, the route travels up into the Adirondack Mountain region and through its oasis at its center, the Adirondack Park. Along the way the Ausable, Oswegatchie, and Black Rivers guide the way with their scenic views waterfalls, drops, and riffles.
