US 11 in northern New York?

Looking ahead a couple of weeks to when we'll be traveling from South Hero, VT (near Burlington) to Niagra Falls in NY. Better to go north and circle around Adirondak Park Preserve along US 11 to I-81 to I-90? Or better to go straight down I-87 through Adirondak Park to I-90? We drive a 41' motorhome and tow a car. In this case, we'd just like to find the easiest route without worrying about how scenic it might be.

Thanks for any input.

The Northway (87) and 90 would be the easiest, be ready to give up an arm and leg at the end of 90. Toot as you pass Syracuse we’ll be

11 is a nice ride through Northern NY. Always two lanes but it's hardly ever really busy, and there are no real hills.

We made a trip across Northern NY not long ago. We stayed at Apple Island RV Resort in South Hero, VT then proceeded up to NY-37 along the St. Lawrence to NY-12 then down I-81. Beautiful drive and not much traffic.

Sorry I missed this thread the first time through. This past June we travelled through the Adirondacks, and we stayed at the Little Wolf CG in Tupper Lake, NY. (Reservations needed) We came up the West side of the Adirondacks, then cut across on Hwy 3 to Tupper Lake. When we departed we used a variety of Adirondacks highways. I really enjoyed the roads, even if only two lanes. Traffic was not bad and the roads were smooth. Had I known they were as good as I found them I would have made my trip into the Adirondacks via interior roads from the South.

So, how did you make your trip and did you enjoy it.

Probably 87 - 90 would be faster. NY 11 is a smaller more rural road but in good shape. The scenery would be nicer doing the 11 route. Just in case you are wondering, those NY roads are in much better shape than most of the roads in VT.
