Kayaking: Pine Creek Gorge


My co-conspirators and I skipped work on Monday to kayak the Pine Creek gorge.

It was perhaps a bit early in the season. There was still snow on the ground in a few places, and the water was damn cold.

About 15 minutes into the trip, we saw the first Bald Eagle of the day.

Recent rain and snowmelt made some nice waterfalls along the way.

The scenery in the canyon is always awesome.

It was a very nice trip. We covered about 22 miles of the creek with only minor incidents of unintentional swimming.

There are more pictures in the Gallery, but pictures don’t do the place proper justice.

If you’ve never been to Pine Creek, you really should go. If you don’t have a boat or a wetsuit or whatever, the people at Pine Creek Outfitters can hook you up. They are nice people, and they have a very friendly dog.

  1. Every time I look at photos of your various adventures, I think about packing up the family and moving there. Nice countryside.

  2. You might want to come here for a vacation or something before uprooting the whole family. Last time I checked, airfare from Mpls to Harrisburg was in the neighborhood of $500.00

    The woods even have their own marketing department now, with a slick web site and everything.

    Ansonia, the town we started paddling in, sits at the intersection of a 65 mile long rail trail, one of the BikePA bike touring routes, and a few hundred miles of dirt forestry roads, so I imagine you could find ways to keep busy for a couple of days.

    It’s a 20 mile ride (on Bike route Y) to Oswald’s shop, too.

  3. As ever, another fine entry of a day well-spent in the outdoors. I only get a little biking done (not much in Spring) while you’re hitting path or river. felicitaciones on a great day.
