Kayak the Lehigh River & Night Hike

Explore the beautiful Lehigh River by kayak on an 8-mile float trip through calm pools and exhilarating rapids. Discuss the canals and railroads that used this path over the past 200 years, as well as ecology of the area. After dinner (on-your-own), regroup for a night hike out on a local mountain for great star viewing and experiencing the woods in a totally different setting. You might be surprised how different things look from the river- and later, in the dark!

Note that all kayak equipment is included, as well as flashlights and/or headlamps for the hiking.

This kayak tour is available from May to October for groups of 3 to 6, weather and river conditions permitting.

"We had a great time and have been talking about [the kayak trip] ever since... we will be back to take it all in again." JR & JP - NJ
