We start on the Saranac River gently descending to Franklin Falls Pond and then Franklin Falls Dam (where the body of water is once again called the Saranac River on the other side). We gently climb Gillespie road before more aggressively climbing to meet the toll road to Whiteface Mountain. We do NOT climb Whiteface (that’s a different video!), instead enjoying a screaming 3 mile descent to the town of Wilmington! A flat 2 miles leads us to the West Branch of the Ausable River and our finish.
