This trip is a follow-up to the June 3rd Kayak Level 1 class. We’ll put-in at Juniata River Access Site #6 which is called ‘Green Valley’ and paddle to Access Site #2, Amity Hall. Total distance is about 4 miles. There are some river wide ledges along the way. The put-in is a private campground and has a $5 launch fee ($2 for students from the June 3 level 1 class). All boats need PFBC launch permits for the take-out.
We will meet at 10:00 am at the put-in and probably get off the water around 3:00 pm.

Everyone is welcome to join us but please note that we won’t be paddling straight through to the take-out. We will stop and practice self rescue skills and for anyone that wants to, we’ll try some river moves (eddy turns, peel-outs and ferries) in the faster currents around the ledges.
