I've done lots of paddling here. It's a nice trail but very well travelled.

Raquette River Outfitters set us up really nicely. Got a ride from their rental office on Tupper and put in at Axton where we paddled upriver to the falls. Unfortunately the 2-day trip was cut short due to torrential rains in the morning of day 2. Day 1 was sunny and relaxing, though, so I still have fond memories. The canoeing is easy and takes you through beautiful landscape: lots of turns through high grass and several really nice camping sites with a view of the river. Great swimming holes and lots of wildlife. Unfortunately we didn't make it to the waterfall due to the rain, but I've heard it's nice. My suggestion: if you're doing this in July or August start off early so you can get a good campsite, and head up to the falls in the early afternoon so you can paddle with the current on the way back.

Steve's Raquette River Canoeing trip

This July i went with 5 other people. We took a seaplane up to view our trip and it was totally awesome. we camped at Kelly point, Sandy beach, Raquette River Canoe Carry., Trombley, and Tuper-they all were beautiful spots top camp out and the river was beautiful. My next trip will be to Colorado, or Idaho-both which contain rough mountains to hike.
