Cape Vincent offers the opportunity for one of the longest, seamless waterfront runs in the Thousand Islands. This pretty town on the St. Lawrence River is also the location of the Hope Ferry to Port Alexandria, Ontario.
The best place to run in Cape Vincent is along County Rt. 6 — a lovely, quiet road along the river, with terrific water views. From the center of the small town, it’s 2.4 miles east 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.
