About your host

What we’ll do

I'll bring you on an adventure down a local creek in a canoe. I have most everything you'll need. We'll meet either at my house, or creekside. You are welcome to bring your own kayak if you wish. I can usually have the shuttle back to your car all set, but once in a while guests may have to drive me the ten minutes back to my car. This experience can be a short, hour-long paddle, or a 4 hr…

Where you'll be

We'll be in the Rondout Valley west of the Shawanagunk Ridge which is home to both the Mohonk Preserve and Minnewaska State Park. The Rondout Creek is one of the small rivers that New York City dammed in the early 1900'ds to make reservoirs for NYC drinking water. The reservoir is only about 15 miles upstream of where we'll be paddling. The creek runs along a historic D&H Canal and many remnants can still be seen along the trip.
