EXPLORE A UNIQUE CORNER OF THE ADIRONDACKS WITH THE WILD CENTER AND BROADWING ADVENTURES
Tupper Lake, NY - Experience the stunning fall foliage of the Adirondacks on this paddle and hiking eXpedition with The Wild Center and Broadwing Adventures on Saturday, September 22nd from 8:30am until 5pm exploring a little known corner of the Adirondacks, Cedarlands.
During the guided exploration you will learn about the history, ecology and conservation of the Cedarlands. This paddle/hike is on lands that are part of the Cedarlands Boy Scout Camp, a property with restricted summer access; most summer visitors to the Adirondacks do not have the opportunity to travel here. The full day trip, consists of at least 3 miles of paddling on Mud Pond and McRorie Lake, some short canoe carries, and a hike 0.8 mile up Mud Pond Mountain. The views from Mud Pond Mountain look to the northwest along the expanse of Long Lake and to the summits of the Western High Peaks, a view rarely seen by others.
The group will travel at a gentle pace accommodating everybody’s abilities. Weather permitting, lunch will be eaten at the overlook on Mud Pond Mountain while enjoying the panoramic views of the Adirondack Fall foliage. After the hike, participants will return to the boats and explore as much of McRorie Lake as time and conditions permits, with the possibility of 2-4 miles of additional paddling.
Join the trip with your own boat (BYOB) for $105. The cost included leadership by veteran Adirondack and NYS Licensed Guides Jack Drury and Doug Fitzgerald, guiding to a remote part of the Adirondack Park, transportation between the launch site and The Wild Center, and a box lunch. The full package, costs $135, and includes the above as well as a boat, PFD, paddle and dry bag.
