Alternate route: Route 17 to Roscoe and 50 miles to Oneonta
This is a tricky route to Oneonta but probably the most popular with our students.

Take Route 17 West to Roscoe (Exit 94) and make a left at the end of the exit ramp; you will be on NY Route 206 all the way but may notice signs indicating New York Route 30 and County Routes 91 (Sullivan) and 7 (Delaware). Don't be alarmed; this is O.K; continue on Route 206 to Walton. Turn right at the first caution light and continue to next light.

Continue to the end of the road and make a left on your way to Franklin; you will be on County Route 21 (note: county signs are much smaller in size and not easily seen.) Approximately 1 mile outside of Walton, the road divides...stay right; entering Franklin, you will make a right turn off of County 21 onto NY Route 357 and on into the village of Franklin; route 357 brings you to New York Route 28. Turn left and you're almost with us. Follow Route 28 to Oneonta and follow the signs to campus.
