Streeter Lake and Crystal Lake

This first 3.5 miles of this trail will lead you back to Streeter Lake on a very gentle and lightly used trail. The trail can be a bit wet in areas, but easily negotiable. This is a nice forest trail experience. From Streeter Lake you can extend you outing a bit by hiking to the south about 0.5 miles further to Crystal Lake. Streeter Lake can be reached by car via Coffin Mills Road in Oswegatchie, which is about 20 minutes west and south of Star Lake.
