Ready fo your ist spring paddle of the Delaware River? I am. The trip is a little over 10 miles of paddle via Durham Rd (PA 212) & PA 611 junction ending in Frenchtown NJ. We will do our own shuttling, meeting & dropping off the yaks in Durham river access (Launch site). One person will watch the yaks as we drive and park majority of the vehicles in Frenchtown NJ (end-point). Finally, we will shuttle back to Durham to start the paddle. This event is really suitable to all levels of kayakers and yak sizes since the water is mostly calm & navigable. At the most, rapids are class 1 and probably a couple of areas of class 1 1/2-2. This scenic paddle will include some nice beaches, mini- islands, marshes, scenic homes, historic farms and hopefully, wildlife.
