Launch Time 12:00 Noon
|Kayuta Lake is located on
the way to Old Forge. The paddle is through a series of small lakes and
is approximately 10-12 miles round trip. We will meet at the launch
site at 12:00 noon (See Directions Below). We are looking at doing a
short and a long version of this trip on the same day. Also, be
sure that you are properly dressed for the paddle and have all
appropriate equipment. A spray skirt would be helpful. If there is
interest, we can go to the Buffalo Head Inn in Forestport for dinner
after the trip. How could there not be interest?
Directions from Syracuse:
Take the NYS Thruway east from Syracuse to Exit 33 which is Route 365.
This is also the exit for the Turning Stone Casino. Take Route 365
toward Rome, NY. There are several turns as Route 365 goes around Rome,
so watch for the Route 365 signs. Continue on Route 365. You will be
going through Holland Patent and Barneveld. Route 365 takes a left turn
in Barneveld. Continue through Barneveld to Routes 12 & 28 North.
Take Routes 12 & 28 North toward Old Forge. Just past the Kayuta
Kwick n E-Z on your right, Routes 12 & 28 split (Note: This Kwick n
E-Z is now closed). Take Route 28 toward Old Forge. About one tenth of
a mile past this intersection you will see a highway department storage
dome on the left. On the right opposite this dome you will see State
Dam Road. Follow State Dam Road about one mile to the launch point. The
road is bumpy, so go slow. The GPS coordinates of the launch point are
N43° 25.362 and W075° 12.454.
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.
