Cayuga Lake State Park to C-S Canal Lock 1
This trip is an extension of Cayuga Lake State Park to John Harris Park. Instead of crossing the lake at John Harris Park, the trip continues north along the shoreline to C-S Canal Lock 1 before heading back to Cayuga Lake State Park via the western shoreline.
Description of Paddling Experience
This trip continues north along the eastern shoreline from John Harris Park through shallow, calm waters to the mouth of the Seneca River at C-S Canal Lock 1, aka Mud Lock. The trip then turns and heads southwest along the western shoreline past extensive marshlands along the northwestern edge, an area which is renowned for great bird watching and observing other wildlife; and heads back to Cayuga Lake State Park.
Paddlers can travel through the Lock into the Seneca River 1.5 miles up to the Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge landing dock.
