Vischers Ferry Nature Preserve in New York

Trip Overview

I discovered this site thru Paddling.net and wanted to try it out. Very quiet area with several Cranes in the area. It was a warm August day when I went w/a 17' canoe. Two of us plus the dog. We got stuck in the lillies half way into the trip! Recommend a spring excursion to avoid the growth.
