Cape Vincent Waterfront

Cape Vincent is a pretty town on the St. Lawrence River. It’s also the location where one can take the Hope Ferry to Port Alexandria, Ontario. County Rt. 6 is a lovely, quiet waterfront road, with terrific views of the St. Lawrence. From the center of the small town, it’s 2.4 miles to the Tibbetts Point Lighthouse. You can also extend west of town on Rt. 12E for about 0.5 miles. Past Elm St. there is no shoulder or sidewalk and the road turns inland. But overall, this can be a 6.8 mile out and back waterfront run!

Add-Ons: Enjoy the cute side streets of Cape Vincent. Also, some of the interior farm roads are nice for running. No shoulder, but not a lot of traffic.
