Glens Falls

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

The City of Glens Falls on the Hudson River is home to The Hyde Collection Art Museum, The Charles R. Wood Theater, a vibrant music scene, and a 5,000-seat sports center.

Glens Falls is a vibrant community with many attractions and year round events for all ages and interests. It is the eastern gateway to the Central Adirondack Trail, starting on State Route 9.

It is a historic manufacturing town located on the Hudson River. The Champlain Canal used to connect the Hudson with Lake Champlain to the North and access to the St. Lawrence River. Today the Feeder Canal provides an eight-mile, safe surface for bikers, strollers, and cross-country skiers going to Fort Edward. Boaters on the old Canal pass through spectacular scenery with many locks and parks along the way.


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.
