Adirondacks in Spring
Posted by: plaidpaddler on Aug-07-12 11:23 AM (EST)
Weather- It can be 80 degrees in the afternoon or it can snow. Rain will be cold. Bugs will be out. Nothing like the mosquitoes in Texas, just very tiny black flies, lots of them.
Places- Two very scenic places are the Bog River Flow from the access point at Low's Lower Dam up to the carry at Low's Upper Dam at Hitchins Pond; and Massawepie Scout Reservation on Route 3 between Childwold and Piercefield. In the spring it is open to the public till mid-June when camp starts. There is Massawepie Lake and 7 large ponds on the camp. Easy access points, no motorboats or jetskis, lots of wildlife from loons to beavers and quiet. Just sign in at the kiosk in front of the maintainence shops, and make friends with the Ranger Ben's dog Marley. She is the offical greeter.
Both of these places are easy daytrips or can be weeklong camping stays. From Tupper Lake Village either is less than 30 minutes drive.
