Paddle the Black Creek for a few hours of light water trail maintenance, followed by an optional pleasure paddle. Bring saws, loppers, rope, work gloves, litter bags. If you don't have these tools, contact the leader for loaners. Must bring your own canoe or kayak. PFDs must be worn while on the water. Boats may be rented from AMC-NY/NoJ at reasonable rates, but must be car-topped to the launch and back. Located a few miles E of New Paltz, NY, the Black Creek is a quiet water meander through a wetland. The banks remain undeveloped and one gets the sense that they're in a wild area. Beavers, various birds and turtles call the creek home. If you plan on participating, please contact the leader to let him know you're coming.
The launch is located on the SW side of the bridge over the Black Creek on Rt. 299 in the Town of Lloyd, Ulster County, NY. Look for sign announcing "Black Creek Launch". This is about 6 mi. E of the New Paltz Exit/Entrance of the NYS Thruway or about 1 mi. W of the junction of Rts. 299 & 9W.
