Launch Time 1:00 PM
|Our Sunday, May 15th
trip is around Howland Island which is located
near Port Byron. It is a loop of approximately
10.7 miles in length and is made up of
sections of the Seneca River and the Barge Canal.
It is also a great place for viewing wildlife.
More information can be found in "Take a Paddle -
Finger Lakes" by Rich and Sue Freeman. This is a
long paddle, so be sure that you can do the
distance. Please be sure that you are properly
dressed for the paddle and have all appropriate
equipment. We will launch at 1:00 PM sharp
(See Directions Below).
Directions from Syracuse: Take the New York
State Thruway west from Syracuse and get off at
Weedsport (Exit 40). Go south on Rt. 34 a short
distance and then turn right on Rt. 31 and head
west. In Port Byron, head north on Rt. 38 for
approximately 3 miles. Just before the bridge over
the Erie Canal/Seneca River there is a DEC boat
launch labeled "Port Byron Fishing Access Site".
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.
