Forbes Ave. Boat Launch

Canoe/Kayak Access

blank dot

The Forbes Ave. Boat Launch, also known as the Hilton Park and Boat Ramp, is located in Troy, NY. It is one of the best available boat launch sites south of the Troy Dam for approximately ten miles offering access to a large urban population where it is extremely limited due to Interstate 787 urban conditions. The site is easily accessible from I-787 and Route 7 and is a premier local fishing and boating access location. The boat launch is part of the city's waterfront revitalization project with a goal of reconnecting residents and neighborhoods to the Hudson River and Troy's 7-mile waterfront. The site is part of the Hudson River Greenways water trail, and has kayak storage racks.
