Lake Lila with a Hike up Mt Frederica

St. Regis Canoe Outfitters

This trip in the Whitney Wilderness Area is one of our longest day trips in terms of overall time.    We drive approx 50 minutes to the access point and portage 1/3 mile to get to the shore of Lake Lila.   Many consider Lake Lila to be one of the most beautiful wilderness lakes in the park.   We start at a beautiful beach and head across Lake Lila to a trailhead leading 1.9 miles up Mt Frederica. The open rocky viewpoint, about 500 feet above the lake, provides one of the best views anywhere.    Optional environmental & cultural history tours available at your request. Note that this is a very full day that can start as early as 8 am and return as late as 6 pm due to the length of the trip in combination with travel distance.

Basic Cost: $159 per person (minimum 2 people)

Cost Per Person Complete: $129 for groups of 4 or more who reserve at the same time.
