River Tours!
The second Saturday of May through August, we will offer a guided canoe/kayak outing.
These 5-6 mile long trips are designed for beginner/novice paddlers and should take about 2-3 hours depending on stops.
Please join us for one or more of these special trips!

Saturday, May 10th - Mayo River

The Mayo River is one of our regionís best kept secrets. With headwaters in Virginia, the Mayo flows into the Dan River near Mayodan. Our trip leader, PLC member Will Truslow, will lead us through unspoiled wilderness. We will see banks of rhododendron and rare plants that are part of the Mayo River State Park, as well as evidence of ancient fish traps and rock ledges/caves used by Native Americans. Call the PLC office to sign up and to get information about canoe rentals in the area.
