Axton Landing to Raquette Falls
This trip will take about 6 hours round trip. Starting out you will paddle upstream towards the falls. The good part is you are getting the tough part out of the way. Once you get to the falls there is a sandy beach, a trail to walk along the falls, great fishing and swimming. Take a break and then continue back downstream to Axton Landing.
How to get there: From the intersection of Route 30 and Route 3 in Tupper Lake, follow Route 3 toward Saranac Lake. Continue past the other junction with Route 30 and continue on Route 3. Locate the Corey's Road and continue down until it turns to a dirt road. On your right you will see a sign for Axton Landing. Take the narrow road right to the parking area. You will see the boat launch.
Type of Launch: soft boat launch
Type of water: flat water, meandering river
