Kayak at Stewart Landing

Rate this Adventure New York Stewart Landing

Added by Rebecca Nichols

A favorite canoe or kayak spot in the Southern Adirondacks. You're almost always guaranteed a sighting of the beautiful Heron.

At the parking area there is a dam. You can launch next to this area; the water is calm. The paddle is enjoyable with very little current. Starting from the dam, a 4 mile paddle will bring you to Lily Lake, There are primitive campsites along the way and great spots to enjoy lunch. After Lilly pond, you can continue to Dolgeville Point. Continue around the pond and head northwest this will bring you into West Lake West Lake.

At this point you can turn back for an approximate 11 mile round trip. If you are able to spot vehicles you could continue to the launch on across West Lake.

I hike to push my limits both mentally and physically, take in the beauty of the great outdoors, and just to get away from it all. Every chance I get you will find me in the mountains, on a kayak or ending my day by the campfire!
