ⓘ Tug Hill

Tug Hill, sometimes referred to as the Tug Hill Plateau, is an upland region in Upstate New York in the United States, famous for heavy winter snows. The Tug Hill region is east of Lake Ontario, north of Oneida Lake, and west of the Adirondack Mountains. The region is separated from the Adirondacks by the Black River Valley.

Although the region has traditionally been known as the tug hill plateau, because its top is flat, this is not plateau, but rather a Cuesta, as it consists of sedimentary rocks that tip up on one side, approximately 350 feet 110 meters in the West to over 2.000 feet 610 m to the East.

It covers the four parts of the state of new York County-Jefferson, Lewis, Oswego and Oneida.
