Coming Events

Wed, Jul 30: Evening Picnic-Paddle, Lake Ozonia. Put in at Lake Ozonia public boat launch at 5:30 PM, 13 miles east of Potsdam Route 11B, then 7 miles up the Lake Ozonia Rd. Paddle around the lake to our camp for potluck dinner. Mike White will be at the boat launch to take people’s food back to camp. RSVP Debbie White at 315-328-4022 or

Sat, Aug 2: Lyon Mountain Lyon Mt (3830’) stands alone in the northeastern Adirondacks in the Chazy Highlands Wild Forest. The new 7 mi. RT trail (elevation gain 1900’) winds its way gradually to the summit and fire tower. From there one is rewarded with 360 degree views of Montreal, Lake Champlain & the Green Mts., and the high peaks to the south. Level 3-4 moderate to strenuous. Contact Tom Wheeler at 315-386-2482 or

Wed, Aug 6: Picnic and Paddle at Higley Flow State Park Put in at the park ramp or the beach at 5:30 PM and paddle a short distance to the fun “Black Lagoon”, a cove of a cove, and then go where the spirits (or the spooks) move us. Return to the beach for a self-catered picnic supper around 6:30 PM. A mystery goody to share might be a nice addition, or a ghost story (gluten-free). There is a nice playground for smaller children, and a great swimming beach. Contact Dick and Peggy Mooers at 315-854-4186 or

Sat, Aug 9: Potsdam-Canton Bicycle Loop We’ll start in Potsdam, and take the southerly back roads to Canton. We’ll lunch at Coakley Park, and take time to enjoy the Grasse River Heritage trail. We’ll eventually loop back to Potsdam, this time on town roads north of Rte 11. Level 4, moderate. Contact Tom Ortmeyer for details at 315-265-8219 or
