The beautiful Adirondack Mountains scenery is an added bonus. There's camping available near Cedar River. Getting
    a good workout and a chance to spend some time outdoors are great attractions for lots of people. Since you're on this site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way in this general area you'll find
lots of paddling spots. The wonderful Hamilton/Essex County scenery and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water have people coming here. If you hurry you can run this section in a day but why not make it an overnighter, so go ahead and pack your sleeping bag.
