Canoeing & Kayaking New York
Canoeing & Kayaking New York 
    Canoeing and Kayaking New York is the only guidebook on the market that focuses solely on the rivers and streams of the Empire State. There is a lot of water to cover in a state almost 55,000 square miles in size, with a good variety of geography to experience as well. From the slow tidal rivers of Long Island to the urban waterways of New York City, the swift whitewater in the Adirondack Mountains to the majestic grandeur of the Hudson River, this book covers a bit of everything.

    Canoeing and Kayaking New York includes descriptions of 50 trips along dozens of rivers. The trips are scattered across the state and designed to fit into almost everyone’s idea of a great paddle. A few over-nighters are profiled along with some short, round-trip day paddles. Other mile-heavy outings are described, as are a few water trails and optional side-trips. Some runs are meant for more experienced paddlers while others are more suitable for beginners and families.

    In every description, though, is included all of the information paddlers need to make their trip enjoyable, safe, and fun. Combined with information about tides, river gauges, GPS waypoints, and maps are personal anecdotes, bits of historical trivia, and descriptions of local plants and animals, all sprinkled with a touch of humor. The result is a guidebook that reads in parts like a collection of short stories, equally fitted for a bookshelf or dry bag.


About Kevin Stiegelmaier
Kevin Stiegelmaier has always been a lover of the outdoors and nature. Growing up on Long Island instilled in him a love of the ocean and led to a degree in Marine Biology. It also led to the purchase of his first kayak and the beginning of what has been a ten year passion with paddling. In that time Kevin has canoed and kayaked on every type of water in every state along the East Coast, although he prefers exploring the waters of his home state, New York. Kevin currently lives on the north shore of Long Island with his wife and daughter and teaches Middle School Science whenever he is not paddling. He is the author of Canoeing and Kayaking New York and Paddling Long Island and New York City.
