As you head south (upstream)Ö

The first bridge you encounter will be a private road on (unless Iím mistaken) private land, so that option is out. Another mile upstream however is a legal launch, off of Four Mile Road. Four mile...

All of the reservoirs along the raquette are nice. The smaller ones like five falls can be particularly appealing to paddlers.

If you mess up and get caught, have the good sense to accept fault and face the (very mild in this case) consequences.

Bringing attention to yourself in a forum such as this, where you are...

Glad it went well!

If you do it again next year, Osgood Pond near Paul Smiths or Long Pond in Floodwood road might be really nice too!

Agreed
