Fall in love with the North Country T

here’s so much to experience in the North Country year-round, but there’s nothing like visiting the area in crisp, autumn months, as the leaves begin to turn a brilliant hue, providing the perfect background for any sightseer ’s photographs. Destination North Country! offers a glimpse at the rich tapestry of picturesque communities throughout Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties that make the North Country a great destination for that fall getaway. Who knows — you may just find the region so inviting you’ll want to stay like so many have already. It’s hard not to fall in love with the area’s natural beauty and the recreational opportunities that abound here like golfing, hunting, fishing, boating, cycling, hiking, bird watching, and many, many more. There are also many places to take in arts and culture, family activities and even do a little shopping as well. After a long day of leaf-peeping or taking an autumn drive to

take in that fresh mountain air, you’re bound to develop quite an appetite. It’s a good thing there’s an array of restaurants to choose from, whether it be a fine dining establishment on the water or down-home family eatery in one of the many charming North Country communities. There’s a little of something for everyone’s individual tastes. Just as diverse as the opportunities to have fun in the North Country and fine meals of the highest quality, so are the opportunities to rest your head after a long day. There are many nationally-known hotels throughout the region, but don’t overlook the inviting locallyowned and operated motels, campgrounds and cozy bed and breakfasts that welcome you with open arms. And, don’t worry if your time here in the North Country is short. You’re always welcome, and with Plattsburgh International Airport and Amtrak’s famous Adirondack line, coming back is as easy as a call to your local tourism agency.

Everyone has a personality. Shouldn’t your kitchen have one too? ® IT BECOMES YOU.

Ways to check out the North Country by bike Biking trails available to all skill levels throughout the scenic North Country

T

54994

he North Country is home to the Lake Champlain Bikeways Network, consisting of biking trails from as far north as the town of Chazy through the Adirondack Mountains and to historic Ticonderoga. In the North Country, the Northern Adirondack Coast region is made up of seven trails that range in difficulty from a family ride to a ride for the more experienced bicyclist. “Monuments, Mills and Music” is a 35.6-mile trail that starts in the heart of the city of Plattsburgh on Durkee Street and heads west. The trail takes riders through the hamlets of Morrisonville, Saranac, Cadyville and West Plattsburgh before returning back to the city center. You’ll pass monuments, see the sites where once-thriving paper mills and saw mills once stood and have a chance to take in the local music scene once back in the city. The name of the trail delivers what it promises. The “Over the Hills and Far Away” trail stays true to its name as it sees varying elevation along its 45.2-mile stretch, from 400 ft. to 1,500 ft. The loop begins at the Plattsburgh town office building on Banker Road and travels through Morrisonville, Schuyler Falls, Peasleeville, Saranac and Dannemora. There are also strenuous parts to this ride though there are several places to stop along the way to take in the history and beauty of Clinton County. “The Climber” is a 38-mile trail that begins at Saranac Elementary School on Picketts Corners Road in the town of Saranac. The trail continues through the hamlets of Clayburg, Standish and Lyon Mountain and by scenic Chazy Lake in the town of Dannemora on its way back to Saranac. This route involves more strenuous climbing around Lyon Mountain,

which has an elevation of 3,820 ft. “Acres of Apples” is a 24.4mile trail that shows the true beauty of the North Country’s apple orchards. This trail begins at the ferry dock in Port Kent and travels through the town of Peru, where hundreds of apple trees can be seen along the way. You also won’t be able to miss the breathtaking view of Ausable Chasm on your way back. In the town of Chazy, “The William H. Miner Story” is a 35.3-mile trail that starts at the Chazy Central Rural School on Miner Farm Road, built by William H. Miner, and adjacent to the Alice T. Miner Museum. The town owes much of its history to the Miner family, who were well-known philanthropists who settled in the town during the early 1900s. The Miner Story trail continues through the cornfields, woodlands and pastures in Chazy and winds through the hamlet of Sciota, town of Altona, and town of Mooers before circling back. “The Flatlander” is a 21.1mile ride that offers a change of pace — or, at least elevation — through the towns of Beekmantown and Chazy. The trail begins at the Point au Roche State Boat Launch and travels across the Interstate via Spellman Road and through the communities of West Chazy and Ingraham. On the way back to the boat launch, there’s even an opportunity to stop by the park’s nature center. Those seeking a much shorter ride will enjoy the “Point Au Roche Family Ride,” a 6.1-mile trail that begins at Point Au Roche State Park and travels along Lake Champlain. For more information about these trails, including directions and maps available for download, visit www.champlainbikeways.org.

eauty can be found at several state parks in and around the Plattsburgh area. Point Au Roche State Park, Macomb Reservation State Park, and Cumberland Bay State Park are popular with locals and tourists alike, with each offering picturesque views of the beautiful North Country.

Point Au Roche State Park is located off State Route 9 in the town of Beekmantown, offering scenic views of more than 800 acres of pristine woodlands, rolling meadows and Lake Champlain. The park is a mixture of open and forested areas. Most are natural and undeveloped, however, there are several nature, hiking and bik-

ing trails which wind through forest, marsh and shoreline habitats. Point Au Roche State Park is also widely known for the Dr. Philip C. Walker Memorial Botanical Trail. Dendrologists — those who study the science of trees — and any nature-lover for that matter, will appreciate the beauty of the Northern Red Oaks, Northern White Cedars, Shagbark Hickories and other species of trees that surround the trail. The trail is named after the late Dr. Philip C. Walker, a noted botanist and field biologist who was known for his love of the section of Point Au Roche. The memorial trail connects 13 exhibits that interpret the rich diversity of botanical species and the natural communities of the park.

Peru •

Farming museum offers a window to the area’s past

T

he town of Peru is an area rich in history and in beauty. With its vast fields, and views of Vermont’s Green Mountains, this town is worth stopping for. Among its charms are numerous apple orchards which add to its picturesque landscape, and, in fall, business at the local apple orchards is in full swing. One of the newest attractions in Peru is the Babbie Rural and Farm Learning Museum. The museum, located at 250 River Road, gives you a glimpse into our country’s rich, agricultural heritage, showing you how life was for farmers and their families many, many years ago through today. Several buildings make up the museum, filled with displays and interactive exhibits, including a milk house, hay barn, animal barn, granary, and manger. Visitors can walk through two post-andbeam barns from the early 1850s and meet the museum’s resident animals. There’s even a chance to experience hands-on corn shuck-

ing and shelling and watch as wooden shingles are individually produced with an early shingle mill. Whether you’re 2 or 102, people of all ages can enjoy a leisurely day exploring history, feeding the animals or riding the stagecoach for a spectacular view of the Adirondack Mountains. The motto of the museum is: “By collecting, preserving, restoring, and displaying artifacts from the 1850s to the 1960s, our goal is to provide an environment where visitors can learn about the heritage of New York's rural and farm life.” The Babbie Rural and Farm Learning Museum is open Wednesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, call 518-643-8052 or 518-569-8715. Museum memberships — which offer unlimited admission for one year, newsletters, e-mail updates and 10 percent off museum store items — are also available.

Explore nature, then throw some discs of cars and other modern technology. Set so far off the beaten path, truly the only noises to be heard throughout the New Land Trust, are the ones mother nature has created. The NLT is located at 236 Plumadore Road and is accessible from State Route 3 in the town of Saranac by taking Chazy Lake Road to Clark Hill Road, continuing several miles before reaching Plumadore Road on the right. If you’re still looking for something fun to do, travel east on State Route 3 and head to the Cadyville Disc Golf Course — a nine-hole course at the Cadyville Recreation Park on Goddeau Road. “It really is an activity for everybody, from active seniors to kids,” said Town of Plattsburgh Recreation Department director Melanie Defayette. “It may be a little more difficult for kids at first, but once they learn how to play, they’ll have fun with it.” “I’m hooked on it,” she added. “When I go on vacation now, I start Googling where the local courses are. It’s very addictive.” There is no cost to play. The only thing you’ll need to bring is your own set of discs, which can be purchased at local sporting goods stores. For more information, contact the recreation department at 518-562-6860 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

he New Land Trust of Saranac, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization, is a unique area in the Adirondack Mountains specially preserved for the naturelover in you. For more than 30 years, members of the New Land Trust have been working to keep the 287 acres of land preserved for the enjoyment of all. The 20 trails throughout the NLT can be used for bird watching, or simply to enjoy a picnic. If it’s bird watching you’re in to, the land trust’s nature blogger on the Web site, www.newlandtrust.org, listed the numerous birds they saw and heard on one outing. From flycatchers, to warblers, to robins and hawks. In all, 18 different kinds of birds were found. For the hiker in you, the Web site offers a comprehensive map of 25 different trails throughout the land trust. Along the trails are various types of trees, including sugar maples, black cherry, balsam fir, and American basswood. However, not all naturelovers can necessarily identify the species of a tree. The NLT can help you with that. Last year, Hannah Racette, a local Girl Scout, worked for her silver award by putting trail markers with the tree species along various trails. The trail system also includes various land markers as well. With all the land trust has to offer, something that people may find missing is the sounds

Keeseville •

Autumn wonders waiting to be explored T

he village of Keeseville has thrived off the beauty and power of the AuSable River throughout its long history. Today, it shares that history and mystique with its fall visitors. If Adirondack history and culture is of interest, Keeseville is a great place to start. Its historic sandstone buildings and bridges are reminiscent of its legacy of a social and industrial hub of the 19th century. Keeseville is the center of operations for Adirondack Architectural Heritage, an organization devoted to the awareness and preservation of the region’s historic buildings and great camps. AARCH organizes regular interpretive walking tours of these sites in all reaches of the Adirondacks. Call 518-834-9238 or visit www.aarch.org to find out about upcoming tours, but be aware they fill up fast. Keeseville offers plenty in the way of outdoor fun, especially at its Port Douglas beach, just a few miles east of the village. One of the finest public beaches on Lake Champlain, Port Douglas offers a playground, restrooms, outdoor grills, and boat launch. Call 518-834-7292 for more information.

While in Keeseville, there’s one element of natural beauty that should not be missed: AuSable Chasm. One of the oldest natural attractions in the nation, AuSable Chasm is the “Little Grand Canyon of the East” with two miles of trails around the rim of a 150foot deep sandstone gorge. Take the Inner Sanctum trail that descends deep into the chasm for riverside views from natural stone walkways, bridges and stairs or stroll along the rim trail for birds-eye views from cliff-side vistas and overlooks. Guided tours, including lantern tours by night, are also available. AuSable Chasm has plenty of accommodations for vacationers including a campground, motel, and rustic-style cabins. The AuSable Equine Center is also in the vicinity, offering guided trail rides on horseback through the forest and Chasm trails, weather permitting. The Equine Center has a wide variety of well-trained horses to fit the needs of any rider. Call 518-834-9933 for more details.

Bell’s Corn Maze is some a-maze-ing fun I

f you’re looking for some wholesome, family-oriented fun this fall, there’s one place where you can get completely lost in it. Bell’s Corn Maze, located at 499 Ratta Road in the town of Chazy, has become a popular destination for families searching for a unique activity that celebrates the season. Matthew Bell, his wife Colleen, and their three children — Kayleigh, Sam and Makena — have established the first corn maze in Clinton County. When maze-goers arrive, they are given a paper copy of the maze’s layout before entering. It takes an average of 45 minutes to an hour for most people to complete the maze, although some have been known to take much longer. In addition to the main maze, there is also a small,

simple kiddie maze, and a large corn kernel play box for young children. Tractorpulled hay rides to the fiveacre pumpkin patch are also available. The maze is open every Friday from 5-9 p.m., every Saturday from 12-9 p.m., and every Sunday from 12-5 p.m., with a few select nights set aside as “Fright Nights.” On these nights, the maze is full of automated monsters and volunteers dressed up in scary costumes attempting to scare maze-goers. Bell’s Corn Maze is easy to find off Interstate 87. Motorists can take Exit 41 to Miner Farm Road, head east to State Route 9, and bear right on Fiske Road before turning left on Ratta Road. Bell’s Corn Maze is 1.5 miles ahead on the right. Watch for signs. For more information, contact the Bells at 518-846-8586.

Champlain •

Historic Champlain named after French explorer M

ore than 400 years ago, French explorer Samuel de Champlain traveled the region. In the town and village which bares his name, it is evident the man is remembered and honored. A large monument of Champlain, which was erected in 1907, is located at St. Mary’s Church, 86 Church St. During the 350th anniversary celebration of Champlain’s travels, the monument was rededicated, proving the importance to the community. Another place to visit while in Champlain, to learn more of the history of the explorer, is the

Samuel de Champlain History Center. The building, located at 202 Elm St., was purchased by Celine R. Paquette in 2001. Paquette, who was the vice chair of the Hudson-Fulton-Champlain Quadricentennial events of 2009, opened the center to fulfill a long-standing dream of hers. The center houses more than 300 books, including the largest collection of Franco-American material anywhere in the United States, which she purchased from Dr. André Sénécal, retired director of Canadian Studies at the University of Vermont. The center also has maps,

The Samuel de Champlain History Center, located at 202 Elm St., houses numerous documents and artifacts surrounding Samuel de Champlain. pictures and many other artifacts, all tied to Champlain. Throughout the years since purchasing the building, Paquette has been diligently working

on restoring the building, which was originally a bank, built in 1880. One of the most unique things about the building, is there are no squared corners. That’s

because the building follows the contours of the Great Chazy River, which flows throughout the Northern Tier. One of the most recent installments of the building is a stainedglass window with the face of Champlain — created by local stainedglass artist Jean-Jacques Duval. The downstairs portion of the building, once completely restored, will house changing exhibits — from the history of the town and village of Champlain. If interested in visiting the center, Paquette can be reached at 518298-1609.

And, there’s even more history to see in Champlain! In addition to the great Samuel de Champlain, the town of Champlain’s history may also be seen in the many homes in the village that date back to the town’s first permanent settlement just after the Revolutionary War. If you take a drive down Oak Street, the first site you’ll see is the original home of Pliny Moore, founder of the town of Champlain. The home, which is today a funeral home, was built by Moore, who was also a Revolutionary War veteran, the area’s first postmaster and the first judge of common pleas for Clinton County. Oak Street is also home to other magnificent old houses, including the Dunning House, with its Italian architecture, and the

very first school house dating back to 1816. The burial site of Lt. Col. Benjamin Forsyth and the historic Glenwood Cemetery, established in 1859, are also located on Oak Street. The village’s first Episcopal church, which was built of wood in gothic style, is also on Oak Street and later became a Presbyterian church. On the corner of State Route 276 and Hayford Road is a piece of history called the Dewey Tavern. It is known as one of the most historically significant buildings still standing in Clinton County. It served as a way station for literally thousands of British soldiers just before their march to the Battle of Plattsburgh in September 1814, and again shortly afterwards when

Enjoy waterfront beauty in the Northern Tier

T

he beauty of Lake Champlain is an attraction visitors come from miles to see and for some, there is no more picturesque view along it than in the village of Rouses

Point. The small village, located in the northeastern corner of New York State, borders the lake with sweeping views of the mountains of Vermont, located just minutes away across the Korean Veterans Memorial Bridge. The village houses a pier and scenic pavilion where people may be found sitting by the water on a daily basis. The structures were part of a more than $1 million project which also included the development of a shoreline walkway and improvements to the neighboring village boat launch. The development shows a vested interest in inviting people to the community to enjoy all it has to offer. The pier is just steps away from the village’s downtown, where a slice of Americana can be found in the restaurants and other local businesses that await you there. The village’s main street, Lake Street, is usually abuzz with activities throughout the year, and fall is no different. Browse unique shops, sample specialty foods and enjoy a charming café complete with Wi-Fi access. Local marinas also offer seasonal events and activities — from regattas to festivals. In addition to its scenic views, the village is touted as being a natural gateway not only to Vermont, but to Canada as well.

Montgomery Street Pier, Rouses Point

Even more to see and do in Rouses Point

W

hen in the village of Rouses Point, there are many things to see and do. Here are just a few ideas that we think just might pique your interest: • View Historic Fort Montgomery — These ruins are all that is left of the strategically critical 19th century fort. The fort, which is privately owned and not open to the public, can be viewed from the Korean War Veterans’ Memorial Bridge which connects the village to Vermont. • Visit the D & H Roundhouse — Part of the Delaware and Hudson Railroad station, this roundhouse is the last of its kind on this railway system.

The Delaware and Hudson Station on Pratt Street, which was crucial to the development of Rouses Point as a railroad town, is in the process of being restored. • Dodge Memorial Library is an historic site located on Lake Street and is a fine example of the Rouses Point architecture. The library’s collection of books and periodicals totals over 14,000 — with an extensive children’s section. Events and programs sponsored by the library engage the community. For more information about what to do while in Rouses Point, visit the village office at 139 Lake St., or call 518-297-5502.

Mooers/Mooers Forks •

Experience the charm of Mooers and Mooers Forks

I

n today’s world, it’s difficult to find a community that still embraces smalltown charm. The community of Mooers and Mooers Forks is still one of those places. The towns of Mooers and Mooers Forks are rural communities bordering Canada, and the towns of Champlain and Ellenburg. If you enjoy fishing, you are in for a treat. There are plenty of access areas to get to the Great Chazy River, where there’s plenty of brook and rainbow trout to be caught. For the historian in you, Mooers has the Mooers Junction railway depot, currently owned by local railway author Larry Marnes. A longtime railroad collector, Marnes has gathered his artifacts and housed them in the station, which was in service for nearly 100 years, before closing in 1961. When Marnes purchased the building in 2003, the roof was

The Mooers Junction railway depot is proof the town of Mooers still embodies the small-town charm. leaking badly, windows were smashed and brush had become overgrown. It took him five years to restore it. “I think my biggest fear is this is one of the few remaining historical buildings in this town and if somebody doesn’t do anything with it, eventually this lot will be sold, somebody will flatten it and build a house here,” he said. Now the building is a sort of museum, and if interested in

touring the facility, Marnes can be contacted at 518-236-7160. “Most of this is stuff that’s been collected, it represents what was here and it’s in the places where it was,” Marnes said of his memorabilia. “Anybody that is interested, if they want to see it, [they] can come in and take a look at it. That’s the idea.” If you would prefer to just take in the beauty of the region, a great scenic view to check out

is the Gulf — also called the Covey Hill Gorge and the Devil’s Den Punchbowl. Though a bit of a hike, the geological marvel is a reminder of the glaciers that receded some 12,000 years ago. Rumor has it, the Gulf was also a remote place frequented by rumrunners back in the days of prohibition. The trail leading to the Gulf can be accessed from Rock Road, a 3.9-mile drive from the intersection of U.S. Route 11 and Cannons Corners Road in Mooers Forks. It is approximately a 2.5-mile walk, which can get rough in some areas, so you’ll want to wear some good hiking shoes or boots. The gorge is actually about one mile in length, with beaver ponds at each end. According to Canadian Conservation authorities, this area also has intriguing topography and bird life, also harboring several species of rare salamanders — so be sure to bring your binoculars and a camera!

Entertainment alive and well in the Adirondacks F

lowers may start disappearing in autumn, but the arts are just beginning to blossom in the Tri-Lakes region. Whether it’s taking in a show at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts or checking out an opening at BluSeed Studios, the arts scene is as vibrant and diverse in the Adirondacks as the leaves. BluSeed Studios, located at 24 Cedar St., hosts everything from exhibitions to open mic nights. The studio boasts a 2,000-square-foot performance space for local, national and international artists and musicians. Artistic director Carol Vossler and her team of dedicated teachers and volunteers offer classes in ceramics, nontoxic printmaking, sculpturing, papermaking and a special program for youngsters known as BluSeedlings. The Adirondack Artists’ Guild, located at 52 Main St., is open seven days a week and features special exhibits that rotate monthly. This fall, exhibitions by Barry Lobdell, Meg Bernstein and Juried Art Show winner Judy Guglielmo are

scheduled. The Lake Placid Center for the Arts, located a few miles south of Saranac Lake at 17 Algonquin Drive, Lake Placid, is a multi-purpose arts center that offers more than 300 programs a year. Events include, music, dance, theatre, film and visual arts exhibitions. Also available at the LPCA are educational programs, workshops and residencies. Every Wednesday through Oct. 15, the LPCA also hosts the Lake Placid Farmers Market from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Local singer/songwriter Roy Hurd’s concert in late September will be just one of the many things to see at BluSeed Studios in Saranac Lake. Photo courtesy www.royhurd.com

Re-live history in Willsboro A

longside State Route 22, just north of the town of Willsboro is a hidden gem of both recreational and educational value — The 1812 Homestead. The 1812 Homestead Farm & Museum, originally constructed as an inn in 1813, operates as an Educational Foundation and Museum of Living History. The Homestead is located on 130 acres in the pristine Adirondack Mountains where the property adjoins beautiful Long Pond. The 1812 Homestead offers its visitors a hands-on perspective of daily rural life on a farm in the early 1800s. Visitors have the opportunity to make cedar shingles, cedar split-rail fences,

and homemade dipped candles. Observe hearth baking, animal husbandry, blacksmithing, gardening, or wool spinning. Get a lesson in the one-room schoolhouse or take a tour of the inn. The homestead has plenty of activities people of all ages can enjoy. Visit the site for two special fall events this year. Oct. 23 and 24 are the dates for Haunted Homestead, two Halloweenstyle evenings designed especially for children with ghost stories, games, treats, and more. Wear your scariest costume and ride down the trail through the Haunted Forest, then return to sip hot cider by the side of a campfire. Younger children are encouraged to
