Hackensack River Canoe &
Meander Through the Meadowlands
September 2, 2007
The weather couldn't have been better for today's meander
through the Meadowlands. We didn't think many people would be around on the
Sunday of Labor Day weekend -- were we wrong! There were a total of 32 paddlers
in 31 boats (kayaks and canoes). Because there were so many paddlers, we split
into two groups. Mike led one group out on the Hackensack River where they
paddled up-river to the NJ Turnpike bridge, back to the launch area, and then
through the Canoe Trail. Nancy took her group through the Canoe Trail and
back along a parallel "trail" to the put-in. Then several paddlers from this
group went out into the Hackensack River and paddled down-river to the marinas
(near the former site of the Barge Club).
