||Jack's Reef to Cross Lake
Sunday, October 22, 2017
Launch Time 12:00 PM
|This is a nice
leisurely paddle on the Seneca River out onto Cross
Lake. It is a good novice paddle, unless it's windy
on Cross Lake which can cause some waves or chop. A
spray skirt would be helpful. Please be sure that
you are properly dressed for the paddle and have all
appropriate equipment. There is an island in the
middle of the lake that just begs a stop for snacks
(This depends on the water level). The paddle is
approximately 7 miles.
The paddle will begin at the Jack's Reef Port O Call
Restaurant launch ramp. The restaurant is currently
under renovation. We can move cars across the street
from the restaurant after unloading.
Directions From Syracuse: From Syracuse, take
690 west past the fairgrounds toward B'ville. Take
the Jones Road exit. At the bottom of the ramp, turn
left. Go straight on Jones Road, it turns into
Brickyard Rd. and ends at Route 173. Turn right on
Route 173. Keep going straight through Warners and
stay on Route 173, which ends at Route 31. Cross
Route 31 and go straight. About 2 miles after you
cross Route 31, you'll turn right on Plainville Rd.
and right again into the Jack's Reef parking lot.
Please Note: Directions for each trip are
