Annual River Trip with North Branch Land Trust

  • Meshoppen Access PA United States

MESHOPPEN TO THE HOWLAND PRESERVE
Coordinated & guided by Endless Mountain Outfitters (EMO)

This year’s ever popular Annual River Trip will be held in conjunction with the 3rd Annual Rockin’ the River at the Howland Preserve. (see separate article)
We will put in at the Meshoppen access and paddle 12 miles downriver to the Vosburg Neck and the Howland Preserve where we will join in the Rockin’ the River celebration. Your registration fee to EMO includes entry to the event.

This is an easy paddle open to anyone and suitable for all levels of experience, even beginners. This section of the river in Wyoming County is exceptionally beautiful with mountain ridges, lush green shores, and the amazing Vosburg Neck. You are sure to see numerous eagles, great blue herons, kingfishers, red-tail hawks, and many other bird species.

Endless Mountain Outfitters (EMO) is our guide for this trip and recreational kayaks and canoes are available for rent. Recreational kayaks are $50 and tandem kayaks or canoes are $65 for the day. PFDs and paddles are included and a lesson on how to paddle will be given. If you bring your own boat, registration for the event is $25. All prices include shuttle, entry to Rockin’ the River and a donation to the Friends of Howland Preserve.

lease meet promptly at 9:00am at the Howland Preserve. For those bringing their own boats, it is preferred that you drop them off at the Meshoppen access, drive to the Howland Preserve and take the shuttle van back to the access at Meshoppen. Please allow yourself enough time to drop your boat(s) at Meshoppen and return to the Howland Preserve for the shuttle back up. If you need to have your boat shuttled from the Howland Preserve up to Meshoppen, there is an additional $10 charge. (in addition to the $25 registration fee)
The shuttle from the Howland Preserve will leave for Meshoppen at 9:30am. There will NOT be a reverse, afternoon shuttle. Your car needs to be at the Howland Preserve at the end of the paddle.
