The Northern region of the Adirondacks lies within Franklin and Clinton counties and is home to one of the most remote and beautiful canoeing areas of the state, and arguably – lower 48. Saint Regis Canoe Area includes 58 ponds and the headwaters of the West and Middle Branch of the Saint Regis and the Saranac Rivers. It is the only designated canoe area in New York state, and is completely free from motor vehicles, motor boats and aircraft, thus ensuring the most serene and undisturbed canoeing experience.
