This section of the river ends at a small, well marked, dam, which of course is why this section of the river is so nice. This can be portaged around easily, but you will find some pretty serious white water farther down stream.
Along the banks of the Schroon are several large embankments, especially Jenks Swamp, where wildlife abounds. Have seen many herons and an occasional otter.
From the excellent put-in at the south end of Schroon Lake you can go in either direction; north takes you along the lake, south down the river. As you leave the lake headed south there are numerous side channels to explore.
Schroon Lake is just a few miles northwest of Lake George, a very popular summer resort. Lake George also offers some excellent paddling, but you will have to be tolerant of the powerboat / personal water craft (lake lice) crowd.
