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 pilots.
