Montgomery/Watsontown: Peace of the Susquehanna

Sunday, May 27, 2018 - 1:00pm - 5:00pm

Location: Trip begins on the West Branch of the Susquehanna beginning at Milton State Park

Description: 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 midway.

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 complimentary 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.

Fees: $45 per person; $35 if using own gear
