Title

Paddle & Pedal Along the Tulpehocken Creek

Location

Blue Marsh Lake, Stilling Basin

Description

Can’t decide how best to experience the Tulpehocken Creek’s natural scenic beauty this summer? Join 3D Outdoor Rental and Parks staff for a double dose of outdoor recreational fun as we kayak AND bike along the Tulpehocken Creek. Starting at the Blue Marsh Lake Stilling Basin, we will paddle the creek to the county’s iconic Red Bridge. After we pull out by the picnic area, we’ll take a break for an energizing snack and a tour of the C. Howard Hiester Canal Museum.  Then we’ll hop on our bikes and pedal back to the Stilling Basin via the Union Canal Towpath Trail to return to our starting point, approximately 8 miles round-trip.
The trip is for experienced paddlers; limited to 15 boaters.
Kayaks and bikes can be reserved through 3D Outdoor Rental, or you can bring your own.
Cost: $40, which includes kayak and bike rental from 3D Outdoor Rental and ACA insurance.
Life Jackets, bike helmets and ACA insurance required.
Pre-registration with payment required to 3D Outdoor Rental, 610-488-1900 by June 17.
