Enjoy the companionship of other friendly paddlers as you watch for riverside wildlife, improve your paddling skills, and learn about local history! This trip is 7 river miles between Montgomery & Watsontown with an island rest stop mid-way.
We now meet at the Montgomery River Access a few minutes before 1 pm. After gear distribution & receiving paddling instruction, we begin our river trip across from remnants of the canal, then paddle past a peregrine falcon nesting site, under an old railroad bridge & around the end of a WWII-era dam.
Keep your eyes peeled for bald eagle sightings, experience body surfing a riffle at the snack spot, cool off new friends with our complementary water blasters, bask in the peace of the river, and notice the V of the pre-historic eel weirs as you make your way around their riffles. When the trip ends in Watsontown, you will get a shuttle bus ride back to your vehicle.
