The road to the Oswegatchie River landing known as inlet is seasonal, and not maintained in winter. Because of snow, ice, and spring soil conditions, I expect the road to be closed to motor vehicle use (cars & trucks) until early May. Even if it's not actually blocked off, I'd avoid using that access road until the road base defrosts & drains between now and the beginning of May. By the way, if you get stuck, AAA will not respond to seasonal roads in the off-season.

Are you sure about that? I was under the impression that AAA will always send someone, but they won't necessarily cover the charge of the tow if you're on a seasonal road when it is closed. Or perhaps that is what you meant to say?

The cost for a tow on a closed road can be substantial... I once saw a truck get pulled 15 feet back out of a deep mud puddle, and the driver was charged over $100 for it.

Right, your AAA membership won't get you a free tow if you need assistance out of season on a seasonal road, so any help you get will be either from a good Samaritan or out of pocket if a tow truck responds.
