Savage River Release #3
The Savage River is located in Western Maryland & is a little known gem that hosted the 1989 Whitewater Kayaking World Championships. The Savage River delivers quite a thrill through 5 miles of continuous class III-IV whitewater. The Savage River is a small volume, fast paced, constant whitewater roller coaster. The trip covers 5 river miles, during which the longest “pool” is 50 yards long. The Savage River is not as technical as the Upper Yough River, but the constant nature of the rapids is such that all rafters should have previous rafting experience. Robust paddling and a quick response to the guide’s directions are a must. Combine the Savage River with an Upper Yough trip the day before or after, and you get to experience the best whitewater Maryland has to offer & SAVE SAVE $$$$$. Call us for the 2 river package details.

    Biking, hiking, boating, hanging around outdoors! Yes to all of the above.

Could be a presentation on a really cool adventure that someone has taken, it might be a bike maintenance clinic, or group ride either on the roads or the river.
