Black River Bikeway, Watertown

Olympic Byway, County Rt. 3, near Watertown in Jefferson County

The Black River-Huntington Bike and Hike Trail runs along the southern shore of the Black River, fairly parallel to Route 3 on the north shore.

Accessible from the eastern boundary of Watertown off outer Huntington Street and abandoned railroad route traversing the banks of the Black River to the Village of Black River. Phase I of a three-phased development project provides limited offroad parking off Huntington Street with a paved, 4 mile, year-round multiuse trail system, scenic vistas offering breathtaking views overlooking the river. A natural amphitheater also adds to the scenic beauty of the trail. The seasons define the use of the trail: Summer use is for hiking and biking. Winter use is for cross country skiing and snowmobile use.
