Paddle Lake Abanakee (Indian Lake, NY)

  • August 8, 2014 · 11:00 AM

Let's paddle Lake Abanakee on Friday, August 8th at 11:00 AM. This is in conjunction with the Cedar River Flow camping trip scheduled for the weekend of August 9th , but anyone is welcome to come along.

Lake Abanakee is a pretty lake with a restriction on motors.   We'll paddle south going under Route 28 and see if we can get to Big Brook Rd (the weather did us in last year) . The lake is about 4 miles long. If we paddle the entire lake and back we will cover about 8 miles. If the group wants to we can also poke into some brooks at the end of the lake. We'll play it by ear. The pace will be casual to moderate.

There aren't many places to get out on this lake but I believe there is a spot at Big Brook Rd where we might be able to get out for a stretch. We may find other spots for lunch/stops - we'll see.

Directions: As you approach the village of Indian Lake on Route 28 heading west you'll cross over Lake Abanakee. Immediately after the lake, turn right onto Chain Lakes Rd. Go about 3/4 mile. There is a dirt parking area on the left and a small put-in on the right.  This is after the town beach.    If you pass the dam you've gone too far.  Remember that the host will most likely be out of cell range for the 24 hrs before the event so any questions may go unanswered until we can find coverage.

    I loved the way the Cedar River Flow paddle turned into a four day encampment! Karen is one of our best, if not the best event organizers, wilderness expert, environmentalist, cook, equipment specialist we have. Thanks for being one of my most trusted wingmen or as I call her, Princess Karen. Don't forget to treat as such!

    Thank you, Karen, for organizing this fantastic paddle! Loved exploring the backwaters and that remote inlet with the huge boulders! Didn't realize Abanakee was a separate listing when I posted pictures to the Cedar River Flow.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
