Hinckley Reservoir

Meeting Time 12:00 Noon

Note:  We have changed the meeting time from 10:30 AM to 12:00 noon.

Hinckley Reservoir is located north of Utica on Route 365. We will be paddling on the reservoir. The paddle is approximately 6-8 miles round trip depending on how far the group wishes to go. Be sure to bring your spray skirts. Please be sure that you are properly dressed for the paddle and have all appropriate equipment. There are some nice swimming options on the reservoir. We will be launching from the Hinckley DEC park.  There is a fee for entering the park.

Directions from Syracuse: Take the NYS Thruway east to exit 31 in Utica. Take Rt. 12 north. When you near Barneveld, take Rt. 365 east. Approximately 4.1 miles from the intersection of Rt. 12 and Rt. 365 you will see South Side Road which crosses a bridge on the right. This is just below the dam. We will meet at this bridge at 12:00 noon. This is not the launch site, but we will meet there and then proceed to the park.

Please Note: Directions for each trip are provided to help people unfamiliar with the area to find the location of the trip. They are not meant to necessarily be the most direct route from your own location.
