Overview

Join an exploration of NW & NE Adirondack waterways by canoe and kayak to view scenic fall foliage! This trip probes remote northern brooks, rivers, and flows in the upper section of the park. We'll discover some new favorites--as well as revisit some popular routes-- with views of Azure, Owl's Head, Jennings, Rice and other mountains. We're near Blue Mt. Road's trailhead to a mile hike up Mt. Azure for exquisite views, too, if a group requests it. We'll opt for brooks and rivers where sedge meadows open out, where conifers and hardwood forests mix, yielding striking contrasts of multi-colors and deep, rich greens. River leaders will confer on final choices (along with participant input) to present two options for two split groups each day, some end-to-end trips, others round trips (to avoid portages, maximize daylight hours, and minimize shuttling!) Expect at least a a quarter to a 1/2 mile carry to some put-ins, even if portages can be eliminated through out-&-back options. Options include: Salmon River, Two Bridges Brook, Onion River/Quebec Brook/Madawaska Flow, Middle Branch of the St. Regis & Santa Clara Flow Stay at Meacham Lake campground. For COVID safety, we've pre booked sites to spread us out, and trip is limited to 16. A designated campfire site will be enjoyed nightly, but prepare your meals individually.
