A nice paddle down a gentle "river" with abundant wildlife. The Kayaderosseras Creek Canoe and Kayak Trail is a beautiful paddle through a diverse semi-rural setting. The trail is navigable from spring to autumn and offers a relatively mild paddling experience with two opportunities for whitewater when the river runs high. Five access points allow all levels of canoeists and kayakers to choose a paddle for their ability. Traveling east from Kelly Park in Ballston Spa, the Kayaderosseras winds its way into Saratoga Lake. Depending on the water level this can be a nice leisurely paddle or it may require you to exit a few times and pull your kayak through some low spots. It empties into Saratoga Lake (which can be VERY busy) or you can pull out earlier. Doing a point to point with two cars is recommended.

Have tubed this many many times. Lots of low spots requiring you to get up and walk gear to the nearest deep spot. If your confident in your abilities, go after a good rainstorm. Creek fills right up and flows quickly.

We enjoyed a nice paddle down the Kayoderosseras Creek when the water as low. There were a few trees down after a large storm and with the water being low it required us to get out and port through the low areas but it was not bad a t all. the paddle was very relaxing. We pulled out just before the outlet to Saratoga Lake.
