 Jeff and Dave Kaplan will lead a paddle at the picnic.  Launch is at 9:45 am from the gazebo area (not the marina). Canoeists are encouraged.   Note: we go out as a group and we return as a group!

High tide is ~9:15AM.  The plan, therefore, is to travel upstream (The Hudson) for 2 miles, circle the Esopus Lighthouse and return: first leg is upstream/north and should take 1 – 1 1/2 hours with the 2nd leg (return to launch site) (downstream, falling tide should take ~40 minutes, barring unforeseen issues such as weather, wind, etc. (* Alternate is Indian Creek).  Must have at least 13.5 Ft boat, equipped with proper flotation devices such as bulkheads or airbags, PDF and plenty of water.

Salley Decker will lead a hike; 845-454-4206. Hike the “new” section of the Greenway Trail starting at Thompson Lane. This will be an in and out hike of less than 4 miles round trip.  Trail goes through nice woods with a wonderful viewpoint of the Hudson River and Shaupeneak Ridge   Contact leader for additional information.
