Raquette Falls Spring Backpack Trip (2-nights):
May 7-9, 2018 - WOMEN'S TRIP

This 3-day trip is good for beginners and those who just want to get away where it's quiet for a bit. The trip is planned as a moderate, leisurely paced hike to the Raquette Falls area with plenty of time to stop & smell the roses... okay, maybe the trillium. No mountains to climb on this trip, just a hill or two to walk up as we get nearer the falls. This trail is generally dry and with the late spring water levels, this is a good time to visit the falls. A variety of late spring and early summer flowers should line the trail. We plan to meet at our home base location near Tupper Lake at 8:00 AM on Day 1. After packing we'll head off to the trailhead in Coreys (15-20 minute drive). We'll hike in approximately 4 miles with hopes of camping on a beautiful hemlock bank overlooking the Raquette River. We will set up camp for 2 nights. Day 2 we will hike to Raquette Falls exploring the area along the river between the Upper & Lower Falls. Then we'll head off to Dawson Pond, a little gem in itself. Day 3 we will enjoy breakfast and the quietness of the river before packing up to pack out to our vehicles. Expect to depart from our location mid-afternoon on Day 3. Space is limited to 6 people. Cost: $420/person. Click here to make reservations for a trip.

Destinations for this excursion include Winding Falls on the Bog River, Round Lake in the Whitney Wilderness area, and Bog River Falls.

We'll explore the outlet of Round Lake and the remnants from the logging days of long ago when the lake and river were used to transport logs from the woods to the mill in Tupper Lake. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and our day will close with a beautiful sunset across Round Lake. After breakfast on Day 3 we will pack up and meander back to where we started. Before returning to our home base we will swing by beautiful Bog River Falls for another photo opportunity. Space is limited to 6 people. Cost: $420/person.
