On the UR FOOT canoeing trip, 6 Trekees will be traveling to Tupper Lake New York in the Adirondacks. Here you will be canoeing in an area where motor vehicles are not allowed, giving you the amazing opportunity to experience nature at its purest. The trip will be three days of canoeing, hiking, and camping on and near the crystal clear Tupper Lake. Since we will be on the water for the majority of the trip, the ability to swim is a must. Camping or canoeing experience is preferred, but not necessary.
