Grand River - Guided Youth Daytrip

3 hr Group Trip
Available as:

This 4 hour adventure launches from private docks at our historic 140 year old Outfitter Shop in downtown Paris. Begin paddling past the town's historic riverside architecture. Outside Paris you leave civilization behind as nature offers plenty to see & do on this trip. The Cayuga is chiefly a relaxing paddle, with dashes of small swifts to keep your interest piqued. You're able to see the great blue herons, ospreys, mallard ducks, turtles and white-tailed deer along the riverbank & an occasional bald eagle. Your guide will introduce you to remnants of a world thought long past. Explore the remains of a 150 year-old gypsum mine, a key to Paris' history. Hike the White Cedar Trail through the Carolinian Forest Valley bordering the Grand. Enjoy the view atop the Valley's lookout point. Your guide will help you picture the Native tribe that frequented those same paths 400 years ago.

A great feature on the Cayuga Run are natural cold springs feeding the river. Your guide will help you discover there's nothing like experiencing clean, cold water flowing forth from deep within the earth on a warm summer day. And if you approach spring-fed Whiteman's Creek quietly, you might spot a beaver or otter as you float past. Learn the legend of Whiteman's Creek as your guide reveals the rich history of the Grand's Cayuga Run.
This trip ends in Brant Park Conservation Area by Brantford. With scenic riverside campsites, we offer overnight adventure versions of this trip. Otherwise, after you arrive at Brant Park's Outfitter's landing you'll be on your way home on our shuttle with some great memories to last you until your next trip.

Note: We also do offer an option for shuttle pickups from parking at the Conservation at your trips beginning.

Available every day in 2017 season.
