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.
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.
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.
