CELEBRATE THE RIVER WITH KAYAKING & PADDLEBOARDING

Come join us for Rivers N’ Ridges and celebrate the Coal River watershed on May 11. Co-sponsors include Walhonde Adventures, Coal River Group, The HUB West Virginia, Little Coal River Camping & Kayaking, Hatfield-McCoy Trails and Mountain Surf Paddle Sports. The family friendly, all-day event starts at 9:30 a.m. at the Hatfield-McCoy Trail log cabin headquarters on Corridor G across from Waterways. Cost of $20/person includes lessons in kayaking and paddle boarding and a float down the river for young and old.

Meghan Roberts of Mountain Surf Paddle Sports and Dain Bender of the Little Coal River Kayak & Camping will be offering lessons and use of equipment on the 1-mile section that curves around the Waterways “peninsula.” The float trip lasts about 45 minutes and is low gradient, Class 1 water.

Guided tours are planned throughout the day and you can even bring your own kayak. Shuttles will be provided by Boone County  Schools; Boone Career & Technical Center students will assist with life jackets, loading and unloading, etc. The Forks of Coal Natural Area Foundation will have a booth at the event.
