Town of Duane

Adirondack Trail, in Franklin County

Meacham Lake State Campground and Deer River Flow are in the Town of Duane south of Malone.

The Town of Duane, once home to the largest hop plantation in the world, was originally settled for the abundance of iron in its mountains but today recreation and beauty are its main attractions. The Debar Mountain Wild Forest in the Town of Duane offers the summits of Azure and Debar Mountains as two popular destinations for hikers, while also offering biking, horseback riding, snowmobiling, skiing, snowshoeing, hunting, fishing camping, boating and paddling. The many friendly communities in Towns like this one along the Adirondack Trail Scenic Byway provide the opportunity for an enjoyable walk, refreshment, and to learn more about the area. The Adirondack Trail travels through the heart of the Adirondack Park, passing through vibrant small towns and villages steeped in history. Serving as an historic travel route connecting Canada and New York's Mohawk Valley, it features unparalleled public access to the mountains and lakes of the Adirondack region. Climbing from the south out of the Mohawk Valley near Johnstown and Gloversville, and from the north out of the St. Lawrence Seaway near Malone, the 188-mile Scenic Byway provides numerous opportunities to explore history and enjoy recreational activities year-round.
