Spring 2020 Update !

We hope this finds everyone doing well and holding up during these unique and difficult times.  Square Eddy Expeditions is a proud member of the Hudson River Professional Outfitters Association and values the safety and health of our clients and guides above all else.  Unfortunately, due to impact of the covid-19 pandemic, and the importance of taking proper precautions the HRPOA along with Square Eddy, have made the decision to postpone the 2020 rafting season.  We will continue to closely monitor the situation and will be sure to provide updates on the whitewater season as we continue to get updates from health professionals and our local government agencies.  Nature has so much to offer and we hope to share the Central Adirondacks and Hudson River’s positive energy in the near future.  On this journey we truly hope and are optimistic…

Hiking the Hudson River Gorge

With our new hike in- raft out expedition we’ve been spending a lot of time at OK Slip Falls and hiking all over the 2,800 acre OK Slip and Blue Ledge parcel.  When you’re standing on the top of the falls you’re looking north east. Across the river, Kettle Mountain which has a steep and rocky top within view of the falls. That spot has been a target for a hiking destination since I first started spending time on the river. I made a point to make this hike happen on May 22.  We had a full day planned, the day began in Newcomb and we were traveling to North Creek for a total of 30 river miles.  The reflections were crystal clear in the calm waters upstream.  My mother Lucy, Lori Phoebe and I worked our way downstream enjoying…

Hike to OK Slip Falls then Raft the Hudson!

We sure are having fun with our new expedition!  The 2,800 acre OK Slip parcel has an incredible amount to offer and every trip we have been learning so much from everybody that we have been lucky enough to spend the day with! Spring is always a special time of year with all the vegetation coming to life!   There are many unique characteristics about this hike and every trip we are all learning more and more.  The excitement when we are lucky to find the purple mountain saxifrage or other rarities that are only found on this parcel of land in all of New York… breathtaking!

Whitewater Derby Weekend in Review

Not only do we have a new expedition that is super fun but Derby weekend was special also!  The start of the down river race is always exciting with all the boaters fired up, ready to paddle downstream!  Most of them made it but the favorite ended up taking on some water that was to much for a duct tape patch to hold. Our local Chamber of Commerce worked with S.E.E. to offer free raft rides on the Hudson from North River to North Creek which was short and sweet but allowed some visitors to enjoy the river!  Live music, vendors and hot dogs were all on Main St throughout the weekend and all brought great energy to the community! A gathering on Sunday was a highlight for our friend and fellow guide Julia that is heading out of town…

57th Whitewater Derby in North Creek!

Not only does Square Eddy have a new expedition to offer, but this weekend is also the 57th Whitewater Derby weekend.  Slalom races in North River on Saturday and a down river race on Sunday are just two of the scheduled events!  We’re looking forward to live music showcasing solo musicians on Saturday night. The North Country Hardship Fund is hosting the event at Tannery Pond so come out and support a foundation that has been so generous to our community. On top of all that action the Hudson is responding to all the rain we’ve had and will be running at an incredibly fun level all weekend!  The USGS gauge is predicting a 6′ (fun and powerful) river level. All of our friends that have been looking for big water, this is the weekend! Call us to reserve a…
