The Hudson River
Alfred Z. Solomon Kayak Launch
Enjoy direct and easy access to The Hudson River with your canoe or kayak at the Alfred Z. Solomon Kayak Launch. Parking is available by the Canal, and the launch is down a short trail which leads to one end of the Riverwalk Sensory Trail. A locker is available for long distance kayakers who want to store their equipment while they visit the local community.
The rehabilitated historic Dix Bridge formally joins Saratoga and Washington Counties within the Hudson Crossing Park, bridging communities and inviting bicyclists, pedestrians, snowmobilers, and skiers to cross the Hudson River. It also serves as the local crossing for the N.Y.S. Canalway Trail, a 546 mile-long shared-use trail following along the N.Y.S. Canal System.
The Northumberland Dam
The Northumberland Dam was originally constructed in 1822 to control the flow of water in the Hudson River and the Champlain Canal. It was an important structure because it created a navigable pool of water in the Hudson where the canal crossed the river. It also provided waterpower to early saw mills and local industries that developed on both sides of the river. Today it provides a dramatic and stunning view for visitors to Hudson Crossing Park.
