Robin shared this information about the launch: Riverfront Park in the Village of Athens, which is within walking distance of the Canoe/Kayak Launch at 4th and Water Streets. That launch has parking for about 10-12 cars. Lots of options for paddling here...go south to Rogers' Island/Catskill, or north, around Middle Ground Flats toward Stockport Creek or 4-Mile Point.
I'd like to paddle south and explore in that direction. Be prepared for Hudson River waves, boat traffic, tides, and wind. Wear PFD, bring water, snacks, sunscreen and anything else for your comfort and safety.
