Bike, Hike, Paddle & Picnic with Email Riders

  • August 26, 2017
  • 9:30 AM - 4:00 PM
  • River Front Park, 569 Vinegar Ferry Road, Marietta, PA

Mark your calendars for a day of fun! Grab your bikes and boats and join us at River Front Park (569 Vinegar Ferry Road, Marietta) for a day of play on Saturday, August 26. Starting at 9:30 am you can launch your kayak or canoe onto the river, ride a bike along the paved Northwestern Lancaster County River Trail, or take a hike along the trail.

  • Boaters will drop (and lock) their bikes at the take-out and then drive up to the put-in at Bainbridge and paddle down the Susquehanna to the take-out at River Front Park. After lunch they can hop on their bikes and ride up the trail to retrieve their vehicles. (A car shuttle will be available to retrieve vehicles for those who choose not to bike).
  • Bikers will ride south in the morning traveling through Marietta and down to Columbia.
  • Hikers will hike north along the river to check out an eagle’s nest along the trail and will then continue north to the White Cliffs of Conoy.

After the morning’s activities, everyone is encouraged to hang around for a picnic. Please bring an appetizer, side dish or dessert to share with the group and SSC will provide grilled hot dogs with the trimmings.

Following the picnic, it’s playtime again, with your choice of paddling, biking or hiking. Or just spread a blanket on the grassy field and enjoy the afternoon. Boaters will launch from our picnic spot and paddle around the area in the Susquehanna River. For those who don’t own a kayak and would like to try it, we will have a couple available to try out. For more information, contact Mike Gavin at emailriders1@comcast.net or 717-495-1905.
