The public is invited to join two local organizations in paddling the Clyde River / Erie Canal on 15 October 2011 at 10 a.m. All levels of paddlers, canoes, and kayaks are welcome. The duration of the trip will be approximately 3 hours.

The Erie Canal is beautiful both ways from Clyde, as is the Clyde River, which is accessible part way up the Canal. No matter which way we head this will be a fairly easy paddle with little to no current and the only waves would be from a powerboat. The one safety caution advised is to dress for the possibility of getting wet in this cool fall weather. Please bring a dry change of clothes in your boat as well.

This paddling event is a joint venture with Trail Works of Wayne County and the Genesee Valley Chapter of the Adirondack Mountain Club. Your Trip leaders will be Mark DeCracker, Charlie Helman, and Peg Warrick.


Take Route 31 to Clyde and turn right to head south on Route 414. Or you can go out on 90, take exit 41, and head north on Route 414. The time for both routes is within a few minutes.

We'll put in at the Clyde Public Boat Launch on the south side of the Canal, on the East side of Route 414. Specifically, we'll launch from Lauraville Landing Park in the Village of Clyde. Take Redfield Street off State Route 414 just south of the bridge over the Canal. Turn right onto Orchard Street. Go to the end. The park will be in front of you and includes a parking area, apicnic area, portable toilet, 1 dock area and 1 concrete ramp. Water and electric are available.
