If you're coming from Ogdensburg-Massena it's not a long drive at all to the put-in location, if you're not familiar with the area there's a road map further down the page.

    keep in mind that a lot of the rivers here are not suitable for beginners. This is not the only paddling stretch in this river system, there are others too. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to

Getting your paddling muscles activated and spending some quality time in nature  
are sure to keep you coming back for more.
