Tough to narrow it down, but some of my favorite areas are:

West Canada Lakes WA
Silver Lake WA
High Peaks WA
Pharoah Lake WA
Moose River Plains WF
Ferris Lake WF (my backyard)

and, of course, my favorite 92 acre spread:

I have two that I enjoy equally . The Hoffmeister/Piseco area and the Saranac Lakes Wild Forest.

SO hard to choose one area.

I LOVE wilderness, so I LOVE those areas that feel like wilderness, those places you can look on a map and say "I've got X amount of unbroken forest behind me in that direction!"

And all of them are at least a little different...the flat areas with the huge trees in the Five Ponds wilderness, the vast wilderness south of the Moose River Recreation Area, the gorgeous peaks of the eastern High Peaks, the beauty and substantial wilderness of the seemingly forgotten and neglected western High Peaks, the rolling hills and ponds of the Siamese Ponds wilderness, the HUGE forest you have to the west of you when you are camping on the western shore of Lows Lake, the Dix Range, which is basically just an extension of the High Peaks if it weren't for a few inholdings between the two wilderness areas, the great swim you get after doing the Tongue Range on Lake George clockwise in the summer...

Not crazy about sharing though - especially with noisy knuckleheads! - So I prefer the High Peaks in winter, prefer choosing destinations in which it will be unlikely there will be anybody else back in there except for the one or two people you choose to go with!

I've found my favorite to be the areas that fall generally, but not exclusively, inside the blue line on my map... Like my kids, I love em all ( the areas) for different reasons. Perhaps a least favorite might be easier.
