Canoe and Overnight Camping on Shenandoah River
Friday-Sunday, September 18-20, 2015
7:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.
$90 members, $100 non-members
Level: 20.0 miles
Beginner and above.
This is a unique opportunity for anyone who loves to canoe and camp or is ready to give it a try! To get an early start on the water on Saturday, we will spend Friday night car camping near the in-put spot, paddle approximately 10 miles on Saturday and Sunday enjoying amazing mountain views and abundant wildlife from the river. We will spend Saturday night camping at a primitive backcountry location along the river near the halfway point. This is a great opportunity to test your backpacking and paddling skills!
You should have water shoes or old sneakers, no flip-flops.
Carpooling, meal planning, gear sharing and all other details will be worked out via email the week before the trip. WWO has a limited amount of backpacking equipment to lend, so don’t let a lack of equipment keep you from participating.
Registration Deadline: Saturday, September 5, 2015
