We will be launching from the Flightlock Rd Boat Launch (Alcathy’s Boat Launch) at the end of Flightlock Rd in the Town of Waterford, NY. We will paddle east on the Erie Canal (Mohawk River) thru the Flight of Locks (Lock E2-Lock E6) to the Waterford Boat Dock. We will then enter the Champlain Canal (Hudson River) and head north to Lock 1 and the terminus at the Halfmoon Lighthouse Park.


This year’s paddle is about 7.5 miles long, but instead of 3 locks we will pass thru 6. We will be passing thru the “Flight of Locks”. This sequence of locks is the largest lift in the shortest distance, only 1.5 miles, of any canal system in the world. We expect to be on the water approximately 4 1/2 hours.
