Take a Paddle: Finger Lakes New York Quiet Water for Canoes & Kayaks
A Comprehensive Paddling Guide to Flat-Water Ponds, Lakes, Streams and Rivers in the Finger Lakes Region of New York
Slide the bow of your canoe or kayak across the shore of a grass-lined pond or the gravel shore of a stream. Dip your paddle into the cool, still water and glide downstream to enjoy the solitude and explore hidden pools and alcoves. Perhaps circumnavigate an island, see eagles flying above, voyage through a historic Erie Canal aqueduct, enjoy the splash of fish darting below your boat or spot a deer standing in the creek around the next bend. The discoveries are almost endless from water level.
