The Olympic Trail Scenic Byway (SRs 9N and 86) winds through small towns in Upstate New York. The Ausable River is a frequent companion on the drive, and at some points it flows mere feet from the road. When you turn onto SR 86, you’ll see gorgeous views of the distant Adirondack Mountains. High Falls Gorge, on SR 86 in Wilmington, offers viewing access to the waterfalls.
