A friend putting a website together for our local waterfront trails, requested images along the Oswego River in our town. So this is a shopping list of sorts for that person. I hope anyone else who happens along this post enjoys the views of the river too.

View standing on lower (Cayuga Street) bridge. Unfortunately, someone cut down the tree thus forever altering the view and flow of the river.


View north while standing on lower (Cayuga Street) Bridge. Oswego River is a waterway that flows north on its way to the great lake, Lake Ontario.


Continuing north we are now near Indian Point — Pathfinder Trail

standing on the lookout we can see where the river bends around Pathfinder Island.


And in the warmer weather, a turn of the century barge owned by the Pierce Gravel Company can be spied with the naked eye.

Hope you enjoyed the walk. Soon we hope to have grants to make the walk even more enjoyable.
