Hudson River Valley Greenway Kayak Storage Racks

Kayak Storage Racks

As part of our commitment to develop and promote the Hudson River Water Trail, the Hudson River Valley Greenway has installed 65 kayak storage racks at 33 sites along the river on a first-come, first-served basis. Each rack has the capacity to store two boats and up to 12 cubic feet of gear. Both the boats and gear may be secured with paddler-provided locks and cables. The racks are intended for short term, non-overnight storage only.
