Two of the 46 High Peaks, Street and Nye, rear magnificently above the water, and the Sawtooth Range becomes visible as you paddle through the marshes along the water.
After putting in off of Averyville Road, the Chubb winds away for a sedate paddle with few carries as it passes through the wetlands in a valley between two High Peaks. These peaks, Street and Nye, rise majestically above the wetlands and provide a great Adirondack backdrop for a paddle through the woods.
Anglers might find both Brook and Brown Trout in these waters. Birders in particular can expect to have a great day on the Chubb, due to the juxtaposition of the wetland and forest providing a variety of habitats for all manner of avian wildlife. Expect to find beaver dams on the voyage! Paddle upstream; when the Chubb arrives in Lake Placid it is dammed.
