Your Day

The Hudson Valley is known for its scenic kayaking and its delicious craft breweries, two of which are located just a short walk from the banks of the river. Today's trip will head north from our launching point to pay them a visit. As we keep an eye out for bald eagles, we will cross the river to the east shore. After we beach our kayaks, we'll take a five minute walk up to the Two Way Brewery for a sampling of their fine brews. We will then return to our kayaks and make a short paddle back across the Hudson to the Newburgh Brewery for another flight. With a full day on the water behind us, we'll be ready to return home, thirsts quenched.

Perfect for: New paddlers, experienced kayakers looking for a relaxing day
