There are two trip options. Both trips are good for beginners. The Hocking River is generally a calm smooth river with a few riffles, islands and sand bars. The stretch the trips run on is Class I.

We transport you upstream and you canoe back to the building and your car with the current. All paddling times are approximate, based on the average time of an average paddler in average river conditions. Both trips run on the Hocking River. Adverse river conditions may make an alternate waterway necessary.

5 Mile River Tour
Approximate Paddling Time: 1.5 hours.
Follow the scenic Hocking River lined by trees and fields. There are several islands and sandbars near the start of the trip that make great stopping places for a little exploration or a picnic lunch. This is a great beginner’s trip, especially for young children, nervous adults, and those short on time. Available by canoe, kayak or raft.

7 Mile River Tour
Approximate Paddling Time: 2-3 hours
Our most popular trip has two extra miles on the scenic Hocking River. There are more islands and sandbars, a few narrow areas, and more riffles, as well as several viewing spots for observing people on the zip line. It also provides the opportunity to hike up and see the Natural Rockbridge, a natural work of art. Available by canoe or kayak.

*Paddling times are at your own pace. So relax and enjoy your trip!
