Paddle Hudson River to Peanut Leap Falls on Palisades

Launch from JFK Marina and Park.  (Possible $10 parking fee) The launch point is a Concrete Boat Ramp. Cross the Hudson to the Palisades and follow the coast to the Falls.  Bring Lunch/Snacks to enjoy at the falls, we will probably rest here about 1 hr.  Round trip about 8 miles. We could experience heavy current and waves on the Hudson. Spray Skirts are highly recommended.  This is an Intermediate Paddle.  If you have any questions on if this is a good paddle for you to come on, please do not hesitate to contact me.  :)

    We just need to remind mother nature to turn on the falls before we go next time.

      Unless of course Laura learns the right dance to do the job mother nature didn't do for us on Saturday! It was a great trip and great mix of paddlers. Hopefully Jim has recovered from the little tumble off the rock that Larua helped him with!

    Fun Day ( Do I ever have a bad day on the water ? ) A nice chop with wind in the first half of the trip and a quick trip back.

    Wind and Waves on the trip to the falls. Just a typical day on the Hudson. Everything laid flat on the way back.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
