  • Day trip in the Saranac Lake/Lake Placid?

    My father and I are looking for a day trip in the Saranac Lake/Lake Placid Area. He's coming from Plattsburgh and I'm coming from Moira.

    Preferably a slow moving river we could do in 5 hours, more or less. Little or no portaging involved.

    I've done the Osgood River from both directions. Something similar to that would be great.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    A couple of ideas that seem to meet your criteria:

    Chubb River upstream from Lake Placid
    Saranac River from Saranac Lake to Bloomingdale
