The Tioughnioga River from Truxton to
Cortland is a great trip for experienced paddlers. It is not
recommended for beginners. The river is slow and meandering
except for a few fairly smooth fast stretches and an exciting dam
opening which may be portaged.
Directions: Meet at the Burger King
parking lot at the Tully exit off of Rt. 81 (Exit 14) at 10:00 AM.
on Rt. 13 just south of Truxton on right before the Rt.
91 bridge and then shuttle vehicles to the take-out at Yaman Park in
Cortland. Bring a lunch. Also, be
sure to dress
appropriately for the weather. The water is
still cold. A spray skirt is recommended.
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.
