Paddling Distance: 3 miles. Access to canoe route via launch sites on Follensby Clear Pond off Route 30 or from Polliwog Pond on Floodwood Road. You won't find an easier "pond-hopping" paddling experience than this one. All the carries are extemely short; you can practically see from lake to lake. Follensby Clear Pond is a beautiful Adirondack pond with numerous campsites found along its shore and on islands. The loop passes through a series of interesting and scenic ponds: Follensby Clear Pond/Polliwog Pond/Horseshoe Pond. To extend your canoe or kayak outing, carry .2 mile to Fish Creek and explore that area. You can also paddle under Route 30 and through Spider Creek Passage into Fish Creek Ponds. From there you can paddle through a passage that leads out into Upper Saranac Lake or you can paddle clockwise through Fish Creek Ponds and then up Fish Creek returning via the .2 mile carry.
