Hudson River Whitewater Derby

May 6-7, 2017
60th Annual Hudson River Whitewater Derby
North River - North Creek - Riparius

From the South (New York City Metro Area)
Get on the NYS Thruway I-87 and head north.  Take exit 24 Albany, pay the toll and get on I-87 the Northway (yep, same interstate number, different name).  Drive to exit 23 Warrensburg, take a left at the end of the ramp and a right onto Route 9.  Drive through Warrensburg and north of town take a left onto Route 28.  Follow Route 28 passing through Wevertown and North Creek on your way to North River, where most of the races start.  Keep in mind the Downriver Race starts in North Creek.

From the North (Plattsburgh, Quebec)
I-87 south to exit 25 - Chestertown.  Turn right at the end of the ramp, pass by Chestertown and Loon Lake, cross the Hudson at Riparius and onward to the traffic light in Wevertown.  Turn right onto Route 28 and head to North Creek or North River.

From the West (Buffalo, Syracuse)
Take I-90 to the exit for Route 365.  Take Route 365 east to the junction with Route 8 and take a left.  At the traffic light in Wevertown, turn left and head to North Creek or North River.

From the East (Ticonderoga, Central-Vermont)
Depends!  Either find NY Route 149 and head to Lake George, then take a right onto Route 9 heading north to the Route 28 junction a couple miles north of Warrensburg. Turn onto Route 28 and head 15 miles or so to North Creek or North River. 
OR, head to Ticonderoga and take NY Route 74 west to the Northway, take that south to exit 25 and take a right at the end of the ramp.  You're on Route 8, stay on it until you reach Wevertown, then take a right onto Route 28 and head to North Creek or North River!
