The trip is from Paw Paw, WV to Little Orleans, MD.
About 20 miles stretched over three days so a very lazy pace. I don’t think any of the ledges even qualify as Class I. Lunches along the river, swimming, fishing, water fights, etc…
A West Virginia or Maryland license is required for fishing.
Friday, June 29
8:00 Breakfast in Hancock, Md at Park-n-Dine and head to the river. It is about 50 miles to the Paw Paw WV public boat ramp. The shuttle details depend on how many people are going so please still plan on meeting at the Diner by 9:00 for those skipping breakfast.
We are camping at the hiker/biker campsites between the C&O canal and the Potomac. Sorrel Ridge on Saturday and Devil’s Alley on Sunday. All the gear is taken in the boats. There is no access to a car along the way. It is not completely primitive camping though. There is a picnic table, fire pit, water pump, and outdoor toilet at each site.
We arrive at the camp sites mid afternoon with plenty of time to set up and explore. Typically back on the river the following morning between 9 and 10. No alarm clocks!!
Sunday, July 1
Noon – Arrive Little Orleans take-out. We sometimes stop at Bills after the shuttle before saying goodbye.
Hope you can make it. The more the merrier 🙂
