This section of the trail begins in historic Long Lake,
New York, where Adirondack wilderness guides once
battled the damming of the waterways with explosives
and the nighttime sinking of a steamship. Following the
route of early loggers and hunters, the Trail winds along
rivers, through a unique silver maple swamp, and across
open lakes, where century-old, hand-operated locks still
convey paddlers between waterways.
