A hot afternoon is perfect for a kayak & bike adventure. We wanted to be able to kayak downstream and then bike back to our car. Honeoye Creek in July is about 12″ deep in most spots and requires an occasional portage through shallow spots. This is a scenic and safe kayak ride through 3.5 miles of clear, winding water.
While floating along we saw Raccoons, Woodchucks, Deer, Hawk, Heron, Kingfisher, Turkey Vulture, Fox, Snapping Turtle, Painted Turtle, Rainbow Trout, Suckers, Carp, Frogs, and very few people.
Once we pulled our kayaks up to road level, we unlocked our bikes, locked the kayaks and started riding on Golah Rd to East River Rd. Head north on East River Rd until you see the entrance to the Lehigh Valley Trail. You can bike on the trail and it rejoins Fischell Rd right next t the boat launch.
It took us about two and a half hours to very lazily kayak and about 30 minutes to ride back to our car. Pack a picnic, bring lots of water, and remember there are no rest rooms.
Ayrault Rd launch:
