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!
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!
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 spot for Saturday or Sunday. We’ll be out there and would love for you to join us. Check out our Hudson River Trips page for more information about our available trips.
