Map: Dannemora Mountain Haul Road Trails

Just north of Dannemora, as you climb Dannemora Mountain on NY 374, there is a pull off with a water fountain that is popular for tourists and locals seeking a source of good spring water. From there are several old haul road trails that you can hike along on Dannemora Mountain, a previously logged area that once supplied the wood used in the wood furnaces that heated Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora. At one time, the state brought prisoners up here to log the area, and provide heat for their facility. The mixed cover is good for wildlife viewing and hunting in this remote, little visited portion of the Northern Adirondacks.

The primary purposes of the Wickham Marsh Wildlife Management (WMA) are for wildlife management, wildlife habitat management, and wildlife-dependent recreation. The area encompasses 862 acres. Land purchases for this management area commenced in 1950 with the acquisition of 176 acres from the Watson Estate and were completed in 1970 with the additions of 136 acres from Loyola Villa and 370 acres from the Mattig Corporation. The habitat presently includes a remnant of the Pine Barrens ecosystem of pitch pine, scrub oak, sweet fern, and blueberry, as well as invading white pine, grey birch, hazelnut, aspen, cinquefoil and bracken fern.

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.

Ausable Marsh Wildlife Management Area encompasses 660 acres adjacent to Lake Champlain along U.S. Highway Route 9 in the Town of Peru, Clinton County. The land for this management area was acquired in 1950 from the Peru Development Company.

Over thousands of years, water-borne materials have been deposited by the Ausable River at its juncture with Lake Champlain. This has created a fertile delta at the river's mouth which has been utilized by mankind for centuries. Prior to state ownership, the area was used primarily for agriculture and timber harvesting. Today, Ausable Marsh is managed by the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) for a variety of recreational and scientific purposes, including: natural resources education, wildlife observation and photography, fishing, trapping, hunting, and canoeing. One of the primary objectives is to provide nesting and feeding habitat to a variety of waterfowl.
