On a beautiful and sunny day in May, the PureADK duo and their adventurous companions, Matt and Sarah, ventured to the Western-Central Adirondack region to get in some spring paddling. After first heading to the Woodhull Lake road only to find it still barricaded, we changed our plans and trekked further north, heading to the Fulton Chain of Lakes. Here’s a video from our afternoon picnic lunch and paddle on Sixth and Seventh Lakes. These lakes make up part of the Northern Forest Canoe Trail Northern Forest Canoe Trail, which is a 740 mile paddling route that extends from Old Forge, NY in the Adirondack Park, all the way up to Fort Kent, Maine.
We stopped at a pleasant campsite with a lean-to where we enjoyed a delicious grilled cheese and fresh strawberries. Our paddle back to the put-in was very windy, and there may or may not have been an incident involving a tipped canoe and a very wet Matt… Overall, it was a wonderful day trip that ended with the traditional stop at the Screamen Eagle in Inlet for some pizza and cold beverages.
