Water Trails and Kayak Launch
Kayak Launch Launched!
Alfred Z. Solomon Charitable Trust Awards Grant
To all current and would-be water sport
enthusiasts: the newest kayak launch on the
Hudson River is moving forward! A $20k donation
from the Alfred Z. Solomon Charitable Trust will
go toward the construction of the kayak and canoe
launch on the Park's island, at the southern end of
the River Walk Trail. Work is scheduled to begin
by late summer. Eventually, this project will be
accompanied by a white water play park upstream
in the rapids. Get your paddles ready!
You will be able to stop your vehicle just after the
lock bridge and take your Kayak down the trail to
the Hudson River bank. Paark your car in the lot
and it is an easy walk from the lot to the Sensory
trail that will lead you back to the Launch site. This
launch point is almost across from the Battenkil
entrance to the river. You will be able to paddle
down stream to Stillwater along the longest span
between locks on the Champlain Canal.
We have a locker available for long distance
kayakers who want to store their equipment while
they visit the local community.
Included in the Hudson Crossing Park
Master Plan is a White-Water Play
Park for kayak enthusiasts. The natural
placement of rapids will eventually be
utilized to provide challenges to kayak
