HUDSON RIVER: Source to Sea

My buddy and I were looking for an epic, accessible by public transportation from NYC. After reading about Peter Lourie’s first descent of the river 25 years ago, we grabbed the packrafts, hopped on the subway to the train, hiked to the top of Mt. Marcy , and then paddled 315 miles pack to Brooklyn. Enjoy!

wow. impressive mental and physical fortitude. I always wanted to do a lap around Manhattan but I feared getting clobbered by the SI ferry

This is awesome. I thought about this route a couple of months ago and was wondering if anyone was crazy enough to have done it. Congrats, love the adventure.

Nicely done. What brand are your top zip waterproof bags? They look handy. Did they perform well?
