Located in Northern New York barely 30 miles away from Canada, Watertown has a long history that spans back more than two centuries ago when the first New England settlers arrived.

During summer, the trails mainly serve hikers and bikers while in the cold months, XC skiers, snowshoe walkers, and snowmobilers take over.
