Lake George Paddling Camping and Hiking : October 13-15


Recommended Posts

This will be a repeat of a successful trip to Lake George last time last year.  The goal  will be to explore the islands in the middle of the lake amidst peak autumn foliage , hike to some peaks and ledges overlooking the lake,  and camp at one or more  of the many campsites in the area of  Lake George Narrows  (uninhabited at this time of year) , the  Mother Bunch Islands , or on the shores of Tongue Mountain. 
The put in will be on the Eastern side of the Lake, From here there is access to the best spots to explore:  The Mother Bunch and Narrows Island groups, hiking trail heads to the Black Mountain, and Tongue Mountain ,  Paradise and Red rock Bay. 

 Put in is a  three hour drive from Concord NH area)  
This will be about an L3 paddling trip: Mileage per day is flexible,  

Paddling will be moderate, ambling and relaxed,  focused on exploration and stops to explore and walk on foot.(This is a beautiful wilderness area in Adirondack Park)  Camping options are innumerable, as the islands have  many campsites ,now 

uninhabited, we'll have the choice  of dozens of islands to ourselves. 

The main requirement for this trip to be equipped for autumn camping, being able to say warm and dry ;  (suitable tent, sleeping bag, shelter, and cold /wet weather clothing and outerwear. Weather might just be Indian summer warm to hot , but also may also  be wet and cold. Drysuits highly recommended , as staying warm and dry while off the water  will be  required . We can get off the water at any time quickly  no tides or currents, but wind  waves can be significant , especially at the middle of the day. Water temperatures will be in the low 50"s, air temps anywhere from  mid-40's to 60's or higher.  

If you are interested , please contact PeterB  PM on the message board  and we will plan details  by group PM .
