The following was sent to me regarding the 30 Mile River Paddle Trek on July 27th.
"5th Annual 30 Mile River Paddle Trek on July 27th
This year will mark the fifth annual 30 Mile River Watershed Association Paddle Trek on Saturday, July 27th. The trek is much anticipated, with paddlers joining for all or part of the 15-mile paddle from Mt. Vernon Village to Wayne Village, traveling through many of the lakes that form the “30 Mile River.”
The Trek begins at Minnehonk Lake in Mt. Vernon at 7:00 a.m. The trip route proceeds 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 (usually close to 3:00 p.m.). People of all ages and skill level enjoy this yearly trek.
The trip is split into four parts, allowing the option of paddling one, two, three or all four parts. Some parts of the journey require a person to portage their boat, which means they must pick up their canoe or kayak and carry it from one body of water to another because of a dam or other impasse. This is a unique opportunity to enjoy the watershed, as owners of the property between the lakes have generously given permission for the paddlers to portage through on this journey, making this a very special yearly trip.
All of those who pre-register will receive a 2013 Paddle Trek t-shirt. Register online at www.30mileriver.org. We hope you will join us on the journey!
