Hudson River Water Trail Guide
The long awaited seventh edition of the Hudson River Watertrail Guide is now available. First published in 1993, each new edition tracks the development of the water trail which is forever changing and growing as new put-ins become available to operators of small hand powered boats. The guide strives to provide the most comprehensive overview of the 256 mile long Hudson River Greenway Water Trail as it stretches from the base of Lake Champlain in Whitehall and the Adirondack Park, south to NY Harbor and the open ocean. More than a book of nautical charts, the guide is filled with very specific insider and local knowledge of launching, landing, day-use, and campsites along the Hudson River. Also included are suggestions for day and weekend trips, the local flora and fauna one might encounter as one travels the reaches of the Hudson, as well as a section on tides and currents that the small boater should find helpful. A labor of love, the Guide was originally authored by Ian H. Giddy, professor of finance at New York University/Stern College of Business. The Hudson River Watertrail Association works to update the information in the guide to keep it as current and accurate as possible. As the river itself, the upland features and adjacent communities continue to change and evolve. With that in mind, what is contained in this guidebook is the best accumulation of land and river features presently available.
