Let’s try this again! Join us on the Genesee!


The Genesee River Wilds “Fall Float” is set for September 23

From Genesee River Wilds,

Our annual summer float was canceled due to low water, but Genesee River Wilds is back for a fall float on Saturday, Sept. 23. Our new route from Transit Bridge in Angelica to Caneadea should guarantee adequate water levels and be familiar to kayakers who have floated with us in the past.

We will begin meeting at 9 a.m. at our Transit Bridge Access Site just off Route 19 in Angelica. Register at the picnic table and leave your kayak at the site.
Then drop off your vehicle at the Caneadea Access Site about 9 miles up Route 19. Rides from Caneadea back to the launch site in Angelica will be provided. Please provide enough time to register and allow for the shuttle back to the launch site.
The mandatory skippers meeting will be at 10 a.m. at the Angelica launch site, with launch immediately after.
The float should take around four hours, depending on water levels. Expect conditions for beginner to intermediate ability levels.

Remember to bring your canoe or kayak, a life vest, some food and drink, appropriate footwear, sunscreen, hat, zip lock bags. This is a Carry in/Carry out Event.
A Registration form and waiver are required for each person. A $20 donation will provide shuttle service and route guidance while supporting Genesee River Wilds in its ongoing efforts to create new access sites, enhance existing sites and improve the Genesee River watershed. Official GRW T-Shirts and other items will be available for purchase before the float.
Please RSVP via Facebook, email (, or phone (585-268-7153) by Friday, Sept. 22 with the number of boats and people you will be bringing. If you pre-register via TicketLeap at this link, you do not need to RSVP.
The float will go off rain or shine barring extreme inclement weather or unsuitable water levels.
See you on the river!
