Map: St. Regis Mountain Trail

Map: St. Regis Mountain Trail

Follow Rte. 30 to Paul Smiths. Just north of the intersection of Rtes. 30 & 86 in Paul Smiths, turn onto the Keese Mills Road. The trailhead is located approximately 2.5 miles down the Keese Mills Road. This is a popular hike through a mixed hardwood forest to a south-facing rocky summit and an abandoned fire tower. The summit views encompass myriad lakes and the distant High Peaks.

5 miles including return trip... moderately difficult.

Map: Franklin Falls Pond – Saranac River Campsites

Map: Franklin Falls Pond – Saranac River Campsites

This shows the campsites south-west of the Franklin Falls Pond/Reservoir. The Saranac River at this point is mostly navigable at higher level flows but it is shallow with lots of big boulders and some rapids. You will be hoping in out of your canoe. Most of the campsites can also be accessed by parking on the shoulder of the road and climbing down a steep bank to campsites along the shoreline.
