This is a 8 mile, one-way paddle. I will have a car already spotted at the North end so no need to worry about that!

**The Wallkill River shares with great rivers like the Nile and the Rhine the unique distinction of northward flow. This quiet river eventually feeds into the Hudson River

    We'll be late. I'll launch from Town park @5:30 and either wait or catch up. Chris, can you text me when you're passing the bridge/Otter?

    I am looking for a beginner level hike to start with--how does one determine the hike level?

    • Chris B.

      This would be a very difficult hike, it would be like treading water for hours.
