We have put together a short paddle trip… good for families with kids, folks who want to fish, or folks who are a little short on time. FOMR will secure landowner permissions, provide driving directions, and be at the put-in to help you get started. There is no fee for this activity, however, we will not be providing any insurance. FOMR will NOT be leading the actual trip, you will be paddling on your own. However, we will scout the river in the days before the trip to look for hazards and conditions that we can make you aware of. This is a relatively easy-going stretch of water under normal conditions and would be good for beginner river paddlers.

The trip is designed to follow Virginia COVID-19 safety guidelines.

1) We are scheduling up to 10 parties to arrive at the put-in between 8:00-9:30AM. We ask that you be off the river by 2:00PM

2) We encourage float parties to consist of persons who have been staying at home with each other for the past recent months.

3) Use of face masks while in the vicinity of persons not in your household is strongly recommended as per the Governor’s guidance, especially at the put-in and take-out where it is more likely you could be in groups of people not in your party. We are asking all persons to bring masks and practice physical distancing.

4) Paddlers must be able to load, unload and shuttle their own boats and vehicles without assistance.
