River Description


This is a short flatwater paddle between two dams, but briefly:

-To portage around or put in at the feeder dam, carry river left over the bike path bridge over the canal and put in near the rocks on the other side of the bridge.

-The best take-out just above Glens Falls (the falls, not the city) is on river right at the sign that says "Canoe Portage Access". Park at the park across the grassy field. Construction on the Rte 9 bridge has the area a mess for a while.

-Access in this stretch includes Haviland's Cove Beach on river left and South Glens Falls Beach on river right.

A great map of this section is at Glens Falls Urban Bike Map.

Army Corps Study Threatens Lehigh River Boating

1/3/2020
Bob Nasdor

Paddlers on the Lehigh River below the Francis E. Walter Dam and Reservoir are concerned that a planned study by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and its partners, the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) and the New York City Department of Environmental Protection will lead to a reduction in whitewater boating opportunities on the Lehigh. The study will evaluate the feasibility of various alternatives to optimize project operation. Aside from the project's authorized primary missions of flood risk management and recreation, the study will also consider water supply and water quality, to identify possible improvements to the existing structure, infrastructure, and operations that will support current and future demands within the region. The Army Corps is holding a public meeting on January 9, 2020 at the Mountain Laurel Resort in White Haven, PA from 6-8 p.m. to explain the study and hear public comments. American Whitewater, Appalachian Mountain Club, and other organizations are expected to file comments with the Army Corps prior to the September 29th deadline in order to share our concerns about the study and potential impacts on boating, the outdoor recreation economy, and the Delaware RIver Basin. We encourage our members to attend the public meeting to voice their concerns.
