The Endless Mountains Heritage Region is partnering with Endless Mountain Outfitters, Susquehanna Kayak & Canoe Rentals, and our team of water trail managers to put on a four-day, 63-mile river sojourn from Laceyville to Hunlock Township along the 2023 PA River of the Year: the Susquehanna River North Branch. This incredible river adventure will be jam packed with guest speakers and educational programming, great food made by small local businesses, entertainment, amazing river guides, and good times! We even have fun daily themes for our paddlers to partake in.

Not able to set aside the complete four days to join us? No problem! We have two-day packages available and you can select the best days that work for you.

Don’t have your own kayak or canoe? That’s no issue either, as we have plenty available to rent through our water trail partners: Endless Mountain Outfitters and Susquehanna Kayak & Canoe Rentals.

We will launch on the river each morning at 9 a.m. and have camping set up for each evening. There are also nearby lodging options for those who do not wish to camp. Participants will drive their vehicles to the next campsite each morning to ensure their vehicle is waiting for them when we get off the water at the end of each day’s trip.
