Whitewater Park & Trail

Very short trail in Watertown, but great view of the Black River and whitewater rafting

Info: City park, provides a great view of the Black River. A favorite place of whitewater rafters and kayakers is right beside the park, so watch for them and you’ll get a great show. Very short trail, easy walking but some steps if you go onto the decking. Multiple parking areas. See trail map below.  The restaurant Maggie’s on the River shares a section of the elevated walk for their outdoor eating.
