Newcomb is blessed with an abundance of natural waterways, making the Town a popular destination for visitors with boats, canoes, and Kayaks. The origin of the Hudson River, at Lake Tear of the Clouds, is in the Town and it is possible to canoe from Newcomb to New York City (recommended only for those with strong skills and experience, since the river and its banks can be challenging and dangerous in spots). Lake Harris, Newcomb Lake, Rich Lake and  Henderson Lake are beautiful and serene bodies of water located within the boundaries of the Town.
