Water Trail Alert:
CAUTION: A tree has fallen into the river left opening of the Titus Wing Dam (at River Mile 71.3), causing a hazardous strainer situation in this strong current. Until this hazard is removed, DO NOT attempt to run this chute! Portage on river right around the dam. (February 22, 2023)
Must be 16 or older to participate. This event is limited to 15 participants. The first Pedal & Paddle of the season will begin and end at Schuylkill River Greenways in Pottstown.
Ride on the Trail
The adventurous activity will begin with a 4.5 mile bike ride along the Schuylkill River Trail lead by our partner Take It Outdoors. Participants will first stop at the historic Morlatton Village for an outdoor educational tour of the 18th century buildings. Then participants will continue to Douglassville’s Ganshahawny Park to enjoy a boxed meal before paddling on the river. During your meal, you’ll learn more about Schuylkill River Greenways from one of our representatives.
Kayak Along the Schuylkill River
At Ganshahawny Park, the group will receive a brief introduction to kayaking from Take it Outdoors before paddling back to Pottstown along the Schuylkill River.
All participants will be required to wear the provided personal flotation device and sign a waiver. Regardless of skill level, everyone will receive a safety briefing before beginning the excursion. Participants must register in advance. A meal, guides, bike, kayak and all other gear are included with each registration. The cost is $40 per person.
