Highly recommend a kayak down Great Swamp. I started in Patterson NY launching down a dirt road from the Patterson Recreation Center. The recreation center is at 65 Front Street. Drive passed it and make a left and go to end of dirt road about 1/2 mile. Parking for about six available.
The river felt like a jungle cruise. I was warned and can understand that you need to ensure the water is high enough.
I did see a beaver, a heron, birds, turtles and frogs. The underwater foliage was also fun and seemingly iridescent.
Fortunately I was able to get through or around beaver dams and downed trees but if the water was lower I likely could not.
Below is the site I referenced to learn about it. Couple this with Great Hollow Nature Preserve and White Silo Vineyard for a fun day!
This is a non-promotional blog. I am not a photographer nor am I selling anything through this blog. Professionally I am a Business Transformation Specialist focused on gaining efficiencies and reducing costs for major corporations. Recent life experiences made me better appreciate the present and all that can be seen by increasing my focus and attention on my surroundings. I always enjoyed going out and exercising and I would look but I did not see as my attention was on resolving some problem. Captured through pictures and sharing insights about various locations, I hope others can enjoy my research and insights and allow themselves to pause a few moments and truly appreciate and learn new things. When you follow me that is my only gift. To know I have touched you enough to want to follow the blog.
