Center of 10 Rivers Region/Coney Mountain Trailhead

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

The Ten Rivers Region is centered at precisely the point where three counties meet on the base of historic Coney Mountain, near Route 30, the Adirondack Trail.

Coney Mountain begins where the county line crosses Route 30, and is easy enough for beginner bushwhackers. The trail begins where the county line crosses Route 30, south of the town of Tupper Lake. There is a parking turnout on the west side of Route 30 at the county line. Across 30 is the dirt and rock trail up Coney, marked with bright red spray paint, and approximately 0.7 miles long. Steep in parts, it can be muddy in wet times. By the way, the Ten Rivers are Cold River, Raquette River, Beaver River, Marion River, Hudson River, Oswegatchie River, St. Regis River, Bog River, Grass River, and the Saranac River, with their respective headwaters in all directions nearby.
