Susquehanna River Trail
The Susquehanna River flows through the Town of Bainbridge, and there are convenient opportunities to get access to the water for boating. Both canoes and kayaks can easily manage the calm water, which, though shallow in the dry months, can be navigated with small portages through the low water. In the summer months, the slow-moving river carries those who enjoy a lazy float lying in a tube. Views along the river include birds, such as eagles and herons, and river animals, such as muskrat and beavers. Just south of Bainbridge towards Afton, there are a series of cottages sitting high above the river at High Bank, a development that dates to the turn of the 20th century.
To access the river, people can either rent canoes or kayaks at Tall Pines Campground or put their own boats into the river at one of the access points: at the boat launch at William Payne Park on Front Street, at the finish line of the General Clinton Canoe Regatta at Gen. Clinton Park or at the NYS DOT boat launch off Route 7 north of Bainbridge across from the Hess Station at Route 7 and 8.
