As a smaller loop, would the Copperas and Owen Pond work for the OP?

The point I was trying to make is that there's countless ponds and lakes to explore in the OP's general area that would feel no different that the western ADK's. There's no sense driving a couple...

As a fellow Canadian, my advice would be to drive into the Adirondacks a little further than Cranberry Lake. The major attraction for the Adirondacks over camping in Ontario is the mountains....

I'm surprised you found all beaches closed. Most are open much more than they're not... Some rarely if ever close. Actually, other than Bayfront Park in Hamilton, they generally just post the beaches...

This summer at the Speculator town beach my kid was told he couldn't wear his $10 plastic swim mask because it was "diving equipment". Forget about jumping off my shoulders or swimming past the...

Sorry to hear about Jenny as well. It was always nice how you included her in your trip videos. My kids really liked the one with her jumping after you in one of your canoe camping trips.

Nice trip report... makes me want to check out the area a little more... I'll try not to steal your beach!

But I have to ask... How do you remember so many details? Honestly, I don't think I could...

Aug 7- West Jimmy Creek Falls

The family took our annual trip to Wells during the week of Aug 4-11. We were fortunate to be there for Old Homes Days which was fun.

On the Tuesday, the kids were fishing with a friend they met...

Too many to mention, but how about a waterfall destination hike? Would be good for scenery, likely less crowded than a mountain destination and would be better weather wise that time of year.

I was just here today when hiking Chimney Mt. Legally could the owners stop someone from paddling the lake if they hiked/bushwhacked in from the state land that surrounds most of the lake. Obviously,...

I've always wondered, what's a typical day for someone camping in the Moose River Plains? As best as I can tell, it's a long road with not a lot of access to nearby hiking or water.

Assuming you'll have canoes / kayaks, you can follow the NFCT down the Raquette into Long Lake (you'll need to carry certain sections). The SLIM shows a connection to the Endion Rd trail in a bay...

Thanks for the tips everyone.

I'd say we were on the mountain no later than 815. There were 3 other groups at the summit during our 30 minutes or so up there.

On the way down we must have...

Thanks for the advice everyone. My biggest concern was the parking. Having others on the trail isn't too much of a deterrent... but parking dangerously on the side of the road is. Maybe we'll shoot...

Ampersand on a Saturday

How jammed will it be? Are we looking at a schmozzle similar to what you'd see in the High Peaks?

We'd consider going later in the day if that helps.

I wouldn't classify the swim at Woods Lake as undesirable. In fact, it was very nice. I just wanted to make sure the OP was aware that it was a bit of a rock scramble to get into the lake... Not a...

If i remember correctly, we hiked past several sites that weren't really swim friendly. The last site was swimmable, but had large rocks... Maybe 1 foot average. Once in the water, it was quite nice....
