CHUBB RIVER canoeing
Sep 17, 2006 - CHUBB RIVER. 100 yd carry from Averyville Rd, Lake Placid to put-in with log "dock". Half hour to 0.25 mile carry around rapids. Above that, the stream & views open up - Street & Nye Mts. rise over 2,000' above the river, Sawtooth Range. Lunched at small campsite. Turned around when stream narrowed & trees blocked the way. Good views of Whiteface Mtn. on return. Saw no-one else on a Sunday - most of hiking trail parking lots were full on drive over. Fall foliage season is well on its way. Light mosquitoes on land, some biting flies on water. 9 miles, 5.3 hours. Bell Merlin II, a 15' solo canoe.
