Just on the right, off Route 197 as you cross the Hudson River into the Southern end of the town of Fort Edward, NY.
Roger’s Island Visitor Center, Fort Edward, NY.
Although closed for the season, I rode around in it today & took a few pictures with a very olde iPhone! Next time, I’ll bring a real camera! But don’t bring your metal detector! They aren’t allowed on the grounds! There’s a Visitors’ Center, albeit closed now for season. Rode the dirt/course rock roadway on a Criterium, but a Mtn. Bike or “Off-Road” Hybrid would be better. . .

It’s an historical site, and though I’ve been by it many times, I never explored the area. It also happens that I know the sculptress from Porter Corners, NY, Alice Manzi.
