Event description
Annual 15-mile paddle from Mount Vernon Village to Wayne Village, traveling through many of the lakes that form the 30 Mile River Watershed.

About this Event

The event is split into four parts – with the option of paddling one, two, three or all four parts. Paddlers may join the group at any of the four meeting points, and return shuttles are available at three locations:In Fayette, near the Fayette Country Store on Route 17In North Wayne at the dam behind the Town OfficeIn Wayne Village at the Mill Park

Registration fees are as follows: Adults: $25Teens (13-17): $15Children (12 and under): FREE

Important Notes:Bring lunch, lots of water, a life jacket, and sturdy footwear for portages and stream-walking (NOT flip-flops or Crocs). Portage means that at various points you must pick up your canoe or kayak and carry it from one body of water to another because of a dam or other impasse.There could be poison ivy on the portages, so you may want long pants.

A van will be available to shuttle you back to your vehicle at end of the trip, as well as at the end of parts 2 & 3 for those who do not wish to do the whole trip.

Paddling the whole trip will be strenuous and is not recommended for everyone.

If you are unable to portage your own boat, volunteers will be able to assist you.

Please help us protect the lakes from invasive plants by inspecting your boat for any plant material before you enter and when you leave each lake. This applies to each part of the trip.

We will be crossing private property for several of the portages and the landowners have generously given permission for us to do this. This permission applies to this trip only, not for future trips by those doing it on their own.
