Vermont's Northern Woods Pedal and Paddle Package

  • Clyde River kayaker
  • kt-bikers BM

May 5 - Oct 25

Come to the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont and explore the Kingdom Trails and the Clyde River. 

Interesting and safe for people of all skill levels. As you can see from this video it's what you make it. Some people paddle back in about 1 3/4 hours, but most take about 2.5 hours. There is no time limit but if you are out for 3.5 hours, then we charge the day rate for the boat. Often people will be out longer if they are fishing, birding or just plan to be out for the day

River conditions for this section
You paddle with the current down the lazy Clyde River in Vermont as it twists and turns about 4.5 miles, then enter Pensioners Pond. You paddle about 1 mile across the pond to where the Clyde continues out and down to us. This section stays navigable all summer long. It flows faster in early spring. If water levels overflow the river banks, it spreads to the vast flood plains along the way. The pond gets to be a challenge if it is very windy. Always watch the weather and dress accordingly for a fun adventure.

So convenient, 95% of our customers choose this trip
