There are some nice sections as part of the Adirondacks that are detailed in www.NorthernForestCanoeTrail.org. The Fulton Chain from Old Forge to Lake Four is pretty busy with motor boats in the summer, and there are portages too, which you may not wish to deal with at all. The Saranac Lakes are beautiful (State Campsites on Middle and Upper) that are water access only and the Saranac River contains two locks which are kind of neat to experience. I'd recommend the Long Lake to Saranac Lake via the Raquette River, but there's a pretty big portage along the way (1.3 miles) that could be a relationship-breaker. Nice beach at the end, though. We LOVE paddling in this area. You'll have a great time where ever you end up. And yes, St. Regis is nice too.
