|We will meet up at 10, try to get on the water at 11, find a place to eat lunch on the creek, and probably be packing for home around 3 or 4 pm. This trip is scheduled for the Greater Baltimore Canoe Club, but MOCers are welcome. If you need to rent a boat, it can be done through Antietam Creek Canoe. Renters will need to work out their own logistics with the canoe outfitter.|
This section of Antietam Creek has moving water and is rated as Class I to II. The creek is rated as suitable for "practiced novices," meaning paddlers should have prior experience and be able to steer and control their boat. Seasonably cool weather is forecast, so paddlers should bring warm clothes in a dry bag in case they take an inadvertent swim. Cotton clothes are cold when wet, so favor your fleece over jeans and hoody. For anybody that doesn't have a dry bag, I will bring a big, waterproof duffel bag into which you can throw your extra clothes. All paddlers must wear PFDs.
There are no fees for the trip unless paddlers are renting.
This is a one way trip, floating with the current to the end point on the Potomac and then driving back. We will work out the logistics of car shuttle at the meeting spot. This is no big deal but be aware group members are expected to share rides to get the shuttling done.
