The South Colton Flow is sometimes referred to as Lower Higley Flow. This is the least wild of any of the Raquette River Impoundments. The flow is largely not affected by wind. Waterfowl is very common and many of the birds are used to seeing people on the water. The southern part of this paddle has many “fingers” to explore. The northern part of the flow offers views of part of Colton’s Historic District.
Hiking Trails in the vicinity include Stone Valley Hiking Trails and Glenmeal State Forest in Pierrepont. ATV's can also access the extensive County trail network through the St. Lawrence County Multi-Use Trailhead in South Colton.
