Paddling on the Canal – II
Update: As of August 6th, there no single kayaks and no tandem kayaks left to borrow for either the morning or afternoon sessions. The bring-your-own boat spots are also full. Please feel free to ask to be placed on the waiting list! At this point it isn’t very long.
Discover and enjoy the Delaware Canal from a new vantage point – the water.
Delaware Canal State Park Educator Katie Martens will lead the paddle, which will head north from the Recreation Area. The scenery is lovely and there are great tales to tell from the lost town of Uhlersville to the remains of the hydroelectric plant that powered the Easton-to-Doylestown trolley line.
Paddlers may bring their own kayaks or canoes and personal floatation devices, or they may borrow the equipped kayaks that the State Park will have on site. There will be 16 seats available in 12 single kayaks and 2 tandem kayaks. They will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis, so register early for this popular activity. Registration is required no later than August 6. Please do so by contacting the Friends at 215-862-2021 or firstname.lastname@example.org. A $10 donation, payable on the day of the paddle, is requested if participants use State Park kayaks.
This event will start at the Theodore Roosevelt Recreation Area (aka Groundhog Lock), 198 Canal Road, Easton, PA 18942. Parking is accessed from PA Route 611 between Riegelsville and Raubsville.
Summer fun on the Canal!
