Shake off the winter blues by coming out of hibernation and paddling a remote Pine Barrens river! The not-often-paddled Skit Branch is about as pretty as they come... yet unknown to most visitors. We'll paddle the Skit for about 4 miles to its confluence with the Batsto River and paddle another 5 miles to Quaker Bridge.
The beginning part of this trip is extra narrow and twisty, so use discretion about attending if you are a beginner. Dress for cold weather paddling and bring lunch. A change of clothes in a waterproof bag is absolutely essential. As always, a PFD must be worn for the duration of the trip.
The put-in is unmarked and can be difficult to find, so we'll meet at the Atsion ranger station. At 9:00 AM we’ll proceed to the put-in, unload and begin the shuttle. We paddle rain or shine, but hope for shine.
