The 30 Mile River Watershed Association will host its 10th Annual Paddle Trek July 28, 2018. Consider joining us for all or just a part of this 15-mile guided paddle from Mt. Vernon Village to Wayne Village, traveling along many of the lakes and streams that form the “30 Mile River.” Beginning at Minnehonk Lake in Mt. Vernon (starting 7AM), the trip route continues down Hopkins Pond, Hopkins Stream, Taylor Pond, Echo Lake and its Mill Pond, Lovejoy Pond, Jennings Stream, Pickerel Pond, and Pocasset Lake, ending in Wayne Village’s Mill Pond (usually close to 3PM).
The event is split into four parts – with the option of paddling one, two, three or all four parts. Paddlers may join the group at any of the four meeting points, and return shuttles are available at three locations:
In Fayette, near the Fayette Country Store on Route 17
In North Wayne at the dam behind the Town Office
In Wayne Village at the Mill Park
Registration fees are as follows:
Teens (13-17): $15
Children (12 and under): FREE
