First, be sure the use the Tripinator for a suggested trip.
In general, you’ll cover 3 miles per hour for the time you’re on the water (not sitting on a sand bar), this of course doesn’t factor in the day that you have a steady 12 mph headwind. So, if you’re thinking you want to paddle for 6 total hours over 2 days, times 3 mph…you’re looking at roughly an 18 mile trip. We have two options, a 16 mile (Muscoda to Boscobel) and 23 mile (Gotham to Boscobel) trip for you to choose from.
If this is your first trip with us we suggest you look at trips that terminate in Boscobel. Also, we highly recommend that if you’re torn between two trips, choose the one with a lesser distance – you’re better off finishing and wishing you’d done more than thinking it was never going to end. Also, if you’re going with a group of folks who’ve never canoe-camped, go with a shorter distance as they may not be as enthusiastic as you are. 🙂
