Back by popular demand... MOONLIGHT PADDLING
What we are doing: Paddle your canoe or kayak into the setting sun, grab dinner or dessert and enjoy a warm bon fire upon our return to Heavners.
This popular event is great for the experienced paddler as well as the novice. Paddle a canoe or a kayak into the setting sun. Walk into Milford for dinner or dessert before paddling back in the moonlight. When you return to the canoe rental, a bonfire will be awaiting you. No partner necessary, all skill levels welcome. Dress for the weather, including headlamps and water bottles.
