Location Along the Bronx River

Advertisement : Portage – Bronx Zoo Twin Dams

South of Fordham Road about 600 feet, look for the channel on the east (left) just before the falls, leading to a small island between the twin dams here. The short portage trail goes up and over the island. No more than two boats may land at a time and the path down the other side of the island is steep, so exercise caution and patience. Boat launch is at a steep degree, so it is recommended that one person catch the boat the bottom of the cliff point. At high water, there may be strong currents at the launch site.
