Paddle the Clyde
Two nights plus a half day paddle and lunch on the Clyde
Come to the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont and explore the Clyde River.
3 HOUR SELF-GUIDED 5.5 MILE RIVER TRIP
Interesting and safe for people of all skill levels. As you can see from this video, it's what you make it. Clyde River Recreation will shuttle you and your kayak or canoe rental (included in this package) upstream and then you'll paddle back with the current to their headquarters. Some people paddle back in about 1 3/4 hours, but most take about 2.5 hours. 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 the outfitter's headquarters. 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.
Clyde river is about 25 miles from the inn. Along the way you'll drive through the small mountain bike village of East Burke and stop off at Cafe Lotti to pick up your lunch. A nice side excursion, your return to the inn is Willoughby Lake, one of the most picturesque spots in Vermont
This Paddle Package includes:
- 2 or more nights lodging
- Full Country Breakfast Each Morning
- Picnic Lunch on the day of your excursion
- Half day canoe or kayak rentals on the Clyde River with drop in and take-out transportation from Clyde River Recreation
- A $25 dinner voucher per adult to Juniper's Restaurant
