Fulton Chain of Lakes

This paddle follows a series of lakes through classic Adirondack scenery: forested mountains rising above lakeside cottages, Adirondack great camps, small towns, and tree-lined shores. Flatwater ponds and small shallow lakes are connected by portages. This trip starts on Old Forge Pond at the western terminus of the Northern Forest Canoe Trail. Take out is at the state run Eight Lake Campground boat launch off state Route 28.
