Stewart Park to East Shore Park
Heading northeast, this trip follows the east shore of Cayuga Lake to East Shore Park.
Description of Paddling Experience
This is a relatively short trip in shallow water across the southern end of the lake past lakeshore cottages. Paddlers need to watch out for buoys and sailboats from the Cornell Sailing Center as they approach East Shore Park.
Paddlers can head west towards the lighthouse and breakwall, then head south on the Cayuga Inlet; then past Allan H. Treman Marine State Park and Cass Park up into the City of Ithaca’s west end. Paddlers need to watch out for motor boats near the marina and college crew teams. There is a floating transient boat dock at the marina, and a launch area at Cass Park for paddlers who may need a break.
