Discover an Adirondack Paddling Challenge
Combine the winding creeks and rivers with the expansive lakes of the Tupper Lake area and you’ve got a delightful recipe for awesome paddling. Throw in a challenge that could earn you eternal glory — at least in your own home — and a super cool patch, and you’ve got the Tupper Lake Paddling Triad!
Just as the Hiking Triad involves three hikes, the Paddling Triad involves three paddles. Complete them all, over the course of a few days or a year or more, and you’ve earned your patch. Along the way, you’ll marvel at lush foliage on riverbanks, watch for otters, and enjoy fresh air and sparkling water. Expert or beginner, get ready to dip your paddle — the challenge is open to canoe and kayak — in these great waters. Need gear? Local shops and guides rent canoes, kayaks, and all the necessary gear. You just have to bring your sense of adventure!
