As you plan your spring and summer outings, Cross Island Farms invites you to come tour their 102 acre organic farm, complete with goats, cows, pigs, wildlife, and an Edible Forest Garden containing hundreds of varied, edible plant species. They are located in the gorgeous Thousand Islands Region of New York State, only 2 hours from Ottawa by car.
The Great Lakes Seaway (bicycling) Trail in the U.S. extends around the Southern border of Lake Ontario, and along the St. Lawrence River shoreline. It brushes right past the bridge to the island, and they are only 1.6 kilometers from that bridge.
There are many quiet roads on the island to bike on, and they are located only 1.6 kilometers up the road from one of the largest state parks in the United States, where you will find many biking trails; some running through the trees, while others edge alongside the rocky Saint Lawrence.
