Lehigh River Trip Section 3: The Glen to Weissport
August 8 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Jim Thorpe, PA
Join the Lehigh Valley Kayak and Canoe for a run on section three of the Lehigh Gorge from Glen Onoko to Weisport. You should have experience paddling in Class II+ rapids. You should also have done a wet exit and know how to swim in moving water. You must provide your own equipment. You will need a white- water kayak, paddle, pfd with a whistle, spray skirt, helmet, water and a snack. If you have a throw rope and know how to use it, bring that too. Whitewater canoeists, and whitewater IK’s are also welcome!
We will meet in the parking lot closest to the bridge that crosses the river. at 9 am. Look for a Chevy Silverado with a red canoe.
Be ready to run the shuttle by 10 AM.
If I have any questions about your skill level, I will contact you. Please be prepared to tell me where you have paddled and if you have paddled with any member of the Lehigh Club who could vouch for your skill level.
If I feel we do not have enough skilled boaters to run the trip safely, it will be canceled.
