Oswegatchie Hiking Trails Niantic

You’ll love the new bridge and wide, clean trails. Trees are marked with signs to let you know where you are going and how to get back. You can also pick up a trail map at each entrance. Check out giant boulders on the hills that overlook the lake and look for hidden gems like this teepee created out of twigs and branches.
