Passing through Nelson Swamp Unique Area on U.S. Route 20, you look out at a low-lying landscape of wet meadows, deciduous woods and dark groves of cedar and pine. You also see meandering Chittenango Creek as it wends its way to Lake Ontario.
This site has some accessible features, including an interpretive trail. A full list of DEC's accessible recreation destinations is available on the DEC website.
