Nature enthusiasts love Oswego County’s great outdoors! Roughly 200 miles of marked and unmarked trails crisscross dozens of state forests, wildlife management areas, nature parks and environmental centers. 

Many trails are multi-use, allowing people the option of walking, biking or running – and sometimes even riding their horses! Bring your fishing pole when you head out to walk along Oswego’s Riverwalk and reel in a record catch – just one of the things to do in Oswego, NY. Discover local heritage along Oswego’s Harbor Trail or take a guided walking tour and learn about the locations that make the Port City unique.

Our budding spring, warm summer days and vibrant fall foliage are ideal for getting out and exploring. Whether you prefer a relaxing stroll along the water’s edge or blazing your own trail in the backcountry, you’ll find that Oswego County has a trail for you.
