Little Clear Pond Canoe Access

Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 30, near Tupper Lake in Franklin County

Part of the Saint Regis Canoe Area, a half-hour paddle across the Little Clear Pond brings a paddler to the carry trail to St. Regis Pond.

Waterway access to the start of the "Nine Carries" canoe and kayak route is from the Adirondack Fish Hatchery on the northern side of Route 30, southwest of Lake Clear. A dirt truck road turns right off of the Fish Hatchery road. Bear right for the launch area. From this pond, you may carry to additional waterways, including St. Regis Pond, Grass Pond or Green Pond. There is no camping allowed on Little Clear, because the water is used by the Fish Hatchery.
