Road Trip to Adventure: Everton Falls Preserve

evertonLooking for a scenic, family-friendly Adirondack adventure by foot or canoe? Check out The Nature Conservancy’s Everton Falls Preserve that protects a 1.5-mile stretch of the East Branch of the St. Regis River.

From the parking area, there is a short trail through northern hardwood and conifer forests where you can enjoy a picnic lunch at the shoreline along the river. If you are looking to spend time padding, there is a boat access site across from the Everton Falls Preserve parking lot, which provides nine miles of flat-water paddling. For a weekend trip, book reservations at Meacham Lake Campground & Day Use Area and for other local amenities, visit the towns of Saint Regis Falls, Paul Smiths, or Saranac Lake.

Editor’s note: Read more about the recreational opportunities that can be found at the Everton Falls Preserve in this article in the Adirondack Explorer.
