Sat, Aug 24: St Regis River Canoe This is a joint outing with the North Woods chapter. We’ll launch just above the falls and paddle up this winding, grass-banked river as far as the group wishes, probably 2-3 miles, before lunch on the shore and returning to our put-in. It will be necessary to walk our boats through a rocky area, coming and going. Boat limit 8. Contact us by Aug. 22 for details on time and place: adknwoutings@gmail.com. Leaders: John and Susan Omohundro

Sat, Sep 7: Lost Pond Loop Hike/Big Pine Hike This exploratory outing will consist of two short trips near each other (Wanakena and Cranberry Lake). Participants are welcome do either or both hikes.

We will then drive to the recently reconstructed “Lost Pond” lollipop loop trail for a short hike and lunch near Cranberry Lake. If we are lucky we will see great blue herons or osprey, and wildflowers. 2 miles RT. Total miles 5.5 RT, no elevation gain. Level 1 or 3.
