Rock Cut, Hoosick, NY (#8)
#8 Access: The Rock Cut is on NY Rt. 22, about 0.2 miles north of the intersection of NY Rt. 7 and NY Rt. 22, on the east side of the highway. This popular fishing, swimming, and picnicking area belongs to the Hoosac School and is maintained by the Town of Hoosick. The access area is informally signed.
Though floating is pleasant downstream of the Rock Cut, there are at present no publicly accessible take-out sites between it and the Hoosick Falls flood chutes. (HooRWA is working on a Hoosick Falls Greenway project on a stretch of abandoned rail line along the river which would include floating access sites in the Village.) Under no circumstances should floaters enter the flood chutes! (Dangerous by themselves, they also lead to a nearly non-navigable series of ledges.)
