Tioughnioga River
Saturday, May 12, 2012

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. We will caravan to the put in is 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.

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.
