Long and Round Ponds, Croghan

This is a nice paddle on two ponds that are fed by the West Branch of the Oswegatchie. The northern part of Long Pond is home to the Oswegatchie Education Center and is pretty busy with kids enjoying the Adirondack summer. The day I paddled was also the day that the kids were taken up for floatplane rides. From Lond Pond, you can find a channel to head upstream on the West Branch, but it soon becomes a rock garden. I paddled about 4 miles.
