Town of Santa Clara

Adirondack Trail and Olympic Byway, in Franklin County

The St. Regis Canoe Area, Upper Saranac Lake, and a large number of small lakes are in the Town of Santa Clara, where the St. Regis River flows north to the St. Lawrence.

The Town of Santa Clara includes the 58 ponds of the Saint Regis Canoe Area, presently the only Canoe Wilderness Area in the Adirondack Park, as well as most of the 4,700-acre Upper Saranac Lake. In addition, it offers excellent opportunities for hiking, cross-country skiing, hunting and fishing. A hike enjoyed by children is the short trail to the Azure Mountain Fire Tower, restored and reopened in 2003. The many friendly communities in Towns like this one along the Adirondack Trail Scenic Byway provide the opportunity for an enjoyable walk, refreshment, and to learn more about the area. The Adirondack Trail travels through the heart of the Adirondack Park, passing through vibrant small towns and villages steeped in history. Serving as an historic travel route connecting Canada and New York’s Mohawk Valley, it features unparalleled public access to the mountains and lakes of the Adirondack region. Climbing from the south out of the Mohawk Valley near Johnstown and Gloversville, and from the north out of the St. Lawrence Seaway near Malone, the 188-mile Scenic Byway provides numerous opportunities to explore history and enjoy recreational activities year-round.
