Paddling

The Whiteface Region has some excellent choices. While other areas of the Adirondacks feature multi-day paddles, the rugged cliffs and rocky streams of the Ausable River and High Peaks mountains are different. Here, enjoy dramatic photography opportunities, with excursions that can be an important part of a full day.

Don't miss the park at Lake Everest, which has canoe, kayak, Stand Up Paddleboard, and aquabike rentals avaiable, as well as a sandy hand launch site if you bring your own watercraft.

It's like riding a bike. Really!

Franklin Falls Flow has a unique shoreline since it is made by damming the Saranac River at Franklin Falls. The best way to see the full extent of its scenery is by kayak, canoe, or other light watercraft. In places, the water is only 10 feet deep.

There's also whitewater in certain places, such as Ausable - West - Monument to High Falls. A near-vertical drop!

Foamy fun.

Whatever your single craft pleasure, there's a little gem of a location that will provide a great outing. Need guides and rentals? Check out our gear shops.
