How many miles can we expect to cover? Where should we put in and take out at?

We give the general rule that our customers will cover about 3 miles per hour while on the river (not relaxing on a sand bar…that’s ZERO miles per hour).  To help decide how far to paddle and what put in and take out to use you should calculate how many hours you’d like to paddle over the entire number of days you’re paddling and multiply by 3 MPH.  So if you’re looking to put in 8 hours of paddling over 2 days, multiply 8 hrs x 3 MPH = 24 miles.  We can then make suggestions of what trip would best suit your needs.
