Event Details

Canoe through Bronx River Forest, the Batanical Gardens and the Bronx Zoo. ( Upper River Run)

See this map for all put in points.

For all Bronx River trips (Border to mouth, Upper & Lower River Runs and Tidal Paddles) you should bring snacks and bottled water, as there are no stores on the banks of the river. We advise that you bring sunscreen and insect repellent to ensure your comfort. As New Yorkers know, it is important to dress appropriately for occasions, and our trips are no different. Wear sport sandals or old sneakers to protect your feet and offer you sure footing during portages. Wear light, quick drying clothes in case you get wet. Take note of the weather forecast and dress appropriately for the temperature and weather. We are able to provide a dry bag to each canoe, but bring only what is essential to prevent loss or damage to your things. Ziploc bags protect water sensitive belongings like cameras, cell phones, and wallets. While 95% of paddlers keep their boats upright, there is always a chance for even the most experienced paddlers to tip over. When weather events bring heavy rainfall, the river swells and trips may be cancelled if it is deemed dangerous to paddle. Filling out and bringing a waiver with you will save time as we prepare to get in the water.

Upper River Runs
   involve one portage around the waterfalls in the New York Botanical Garden. The first portage is about two tenths of a mile and we use carts to carry the boats. (Photos below by Jonathan Barkey.)

Make sure to sign on to the waitlist as we may be able to expand the trip if there is a need!
