The Ohio River Voyageur Canoe Adventure 128 miles on the Ohio River In 10-person Voyageur Canoes
Cincinnati to Louisville 128 miles – June 6 to 9, 2019 – 4 days
River City Paddlesports, REI Cincinnati and the Ohio River Recreational Trail Committee are seeking kindred spirits to paddle 30-foot-long voyageur canoes the full distance from Cincinnati, OH to Louisville, KY on the Ohio River Recreational Trail. It will be 4 long days and at times before dawn or night paddling on the beautiful Ohio River. Each evening we will camp in rivertown campsites, a truck and trailer will meet us on the river carrying most of the gear. During the trip, we will be collecting geographic data for the new Ohio River Digital Guide, an interactive map for the Ohio River Recreational Trail. We are accepting applications now, check it out: https://goo.gl/forms/FB1bOrkaBGLFM58K2
Participants must be able to paddle a canoe for long distances and be comfortable being part of a team of 9 other paddlers in the boat. The Voyageur Canoes, group equipment, safety boat and all meals for the 4-day adventure will be provided. We are looking for a great diversity of folks, artists, scientists, educators, community folks, but folks who can and want to spend the entire 4 days paddling.
There will be companion bike trip camping at the same campsites each night. Post a note here asking for more information.
Join us as we explore the feasibility of establishing a national water trail on our River. The 128 mile Ohio River Paddle is our first fundraiser, all funds raised will be 100% dedicated to The Ohio River Recreational Trail. check it out: https://goo.gl/forms/FB1bOrkaBGLFM58K2
