HRWA says: The Hudson River Watertrail Association has published the sixth edition of The Hudson River Water Trail Guide, a comprehensive companion to the tidal estuary portion of New York's Hudson River. The guide covers the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area which stretches from the Erie Canal, north of Albany, to the New York City line, plus the New York City and New Jersey sections of the lower river. It contains 160 pages of charts, illustrations, and site listings to help both the serious boater and the casual sightseer to get the most out of a day on the river.
"The Hudson River Water Trail Guide is an indispensable tool for enjoying one of America's most storied waterways," says David Seideman, Editor-in-Chief of Audubon magazine. "The research is so meticulous and detail so rich that just reading this guide takes you on a virtual journey up and down the Hudson. There are bald eagles and eaglets, tidal pools, historic lighthouses, abandoned mansions, great blue herons, mountains, and snapping turtles. These and many other attractions add up to a treasuretrove that will make you want to hit the water as fast as you can."
