Overview

We'll launch onto the Carey Falls Reservoir, with its wide, sandy beaches, and camp there on Friday night. Next day, we'll go up the Jordan River to basecamp. On Sunday, we'll explore the river in empty boats. This is a wild, remote river in the NW Adirondacks. It offers the ultimate in solitude, but also many downed trees and beaver dams to get over or around. The portage to the Jordan is @2.5 miles, but cart friendly. It's on a sandy ATV track. Carts are available for rent in Tupper Lake. Late Friday afternoon arrival recommended, but you could catch up with us early Saturday morning. Be sure to read the blog on the link below.
