Due to the colder weather I am going to shorten the paddle from 9 miles to about 5 1/2 miles. We will meet up and launch from the new Hillsville Launch & paddle down to Coverts Crossing.

With the colder temps and shorter paddle not sure if anyone would want to stop for a lunch break or not.

There is 1 class on rapid under east river road, and a class I+/II past 422. (Radio Rapid)

It is a nice paddle hope to see ya there

Where-567 Hillsville Rd,Edinburg, PA 16116

When-Sunday, October 21st


Time-12 NOON

Direction-

Go 224 east or west depending were you are coming from.
Look for Chuch Hill Rd/ East River Rd
Drive over the river.
At stop sign make a left and the launch is on the bend to your left.

Mike

Keep an eye on the site, and I will also send out an email and make calls closer to Sunday.
Calling for highs in the low 40's

Default Fall Color Paddle


This is my favorite Mahoning stretch but unfortunately I doubt if I can make it tomorrow. I probably shouldn't offer my two cents but...

The trip is being essentially cut in half. Wouldn't it have made send to start later when it should be warmer?

Great Point Ray, didn't think of that.
Meeting up at Noon sounds good.
Thanks

Mahoning River-New Hillsville Launch to Cover Crossing, Trip Leader Mike Danko
October 21st

A small brave group of 6 met up for a true cold water paddle. With temps in the lower 40's we had 4 kayaks (Wayne, Mark, Jessica & Ron) & 2 Canoes (Ed Rigby & Myself)
Bob Danko came down and helped with the shuttle, but wouldn't paddle.

With the colder than normal temps we shorted the trip to a 6 mile stretch using a new launch in Lawrence County PA. It is located in Hillsville rd. and the proper launch name is

Beyond Corporation LLC Launch
567 Hillsville Rd, Edinburg, PA 16116 (Mahoning Township)
GPS 4101'26.3"N 8029'48.8"W
This Launched opened early 2018.

A beautiful easy paddle, but very little color as most tree's haven't turned color on that day. We had one carnage by radio rapid, but it served as a great learning tool on recovery of boat and how to empty a kayak with two people instead of using a drain hole.
Looking forward to the new launch at coverts crossing as it was muddy and slick at the take out.

Just before shuttle we were greeted by Chuck Miller and friend as they did the 9 mile section.
Over all a great day with couple of us going out afterwards for dinner.
Thank you to all who braved the cold day for a great paddle.
Mike Danko
