Launch Time 1:00 PM
This trip is on either the NYS Barge Canal going east from Sylvan Beach and return, Fish Creek and return, or Oneida Lake to Oneida Creek and then up Oneida Creek and back. This will depend on the condition of Oneida Lake. If the lake is calm, we will do one of the other alternatives. We will launch at the launch site which is located under the bridge at Sylvan Beach along the canal. Please be sure that you are properly dressed for the paddle and have all appropriate equipment.
Note: We typically stop half way through the paddle for a break. Feel free to bring something to snack on. Also, be sure to note the weather conditions and check the website for last minute changes or cancellations.
Directions from Syracuse: To get there, take the Thruway east from Syracuse to exit 34 and then Route 13 north. As you enter Sylvan Beach, turn left just before the bridge and then right to proceed to the area under the bridge.
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.
