The Massawepie Adirondack Trek Center offers all Scouts and Scouters canoeing, backpacking, and combination treks during the months of July and August.

 5-Day Trek Spotlight

The Long Lake to St. Regis Mtn. route is a signature trek that invites your crew to experience some of the finest waterways and wilderness that the Adirondack Park has to offer. 

Starting at the State Boat Launch in Long Lake your crew will traverse all of the 14-mile Long Lake, navigate the winding Raquette River while carrying around the majestic Raquette Falls before carrying into Upper Saranac Lake via the Indian Carry. Paddling the length of Upper Saranac Lake you’ll carry into the St. Regis Primitive Wilderness area and tackle the famed 7 carries route on your way to the lean-to at Keese Mill. Friday morning you’ll have a short paddle to the St. Regis Mtn trailhead with a 3.2 mile hike to the top for panoramic views of the terrain you’ve covered during the week. Upon returning to camp your crew will participate in a service project under the expert tutelage of our property manager.

This trek begins on Sunday afternoon and ends on Saturday before lunch. Units will be fully qualified to apply for the 50-miler award at the end of the adventure!
