We had so much fun hiking, biking and geocaching last summer that we thought we would go paddling this summer on the D& R Canal. We'll meet at 9:30 am at the Griggstown Canoe Rentals. We should be finished on the water by about 1:30 pm. There are no bathrooms once we are on the canal – so you’ll be in your boats for the entire time, unless we see a good place for the group to stop. Please bring your own lunch, snacks and water into your boat. We'll have lunch on the canal. There is some shade on the canal but please participants wear synthetic clothing, hat, sunscreen, no flip-flops – old sneakers are fine. Those who want to can take an optional walk along the canal path afterwards.

The website for Griggstown Canoe Rentals has directions and cost and canoes/kayaks available:   .  They do not take reservations.


For folks with boats you should still meet there. George and Leona are certified for leading canoe and kayaking trips so you can do either on this trip. They are certified in Red Cross First Aid and CPR/AED as well.  

We need a list of participants, what you plan to rent and your experience by July 23. Please respond to Life Vests must be worn. Rain and thunderstorms cancel.
