Thousand Islands, NY

The Best Places to Run in the 1000 Islands Region in New York and Ontario

The Thousand Islands constitute a North American archipelago of 1,864 islands straddling the Canada–US border in the Saint Lawrence River as it emerges from the northeast corner of Lake Ontario. In New York, there are 15 state parks, several nature preserves, and quiet waterside roads. On the Canada Side, the Parks of the St. Lawrence is a group of historic and recreation sites along the river, including Thousand Islands National Park, 21 different islands, and the 1000 Islands Parkway. Since this is a large geographic area, it’s challenging to provide a comprehensive guide to running in the Thousand Islands. We’ve tried to showcase some of the best spots, including quiet waterside roads and gentle trail running in the numerous parks.
