Enjoy the companionship of other friendly paddlers as you watch for riverside wildlife, improve your paddling skills, and learn about local history! This route is 9 river miles between Montoursville & Muncy with an island rest stop mid-way and typically takes about 4.5 hours for the whole experience. We meet at the Montoursville Boat Launch before 1 pm.
After check-in and paddling/safety briefing, we begin our paddle with practice in a forgiving pool before heading downstream and around the bend into an area without roads, just pools and gentle drops. 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. As we approach Muncy you will get to see an impressive example of a canal wall from the early 1800’s.
