Paddle to the Capital

Paddle from a quieter area of the state into Pennsylvania's capital city in under 10 miles.

Start your paddle at Dauphin Borough access, go past a mini Statue of Liberty, and continue downriver to the capitol. You will pass several islands in the river, many of which are open for exploring. Be sure to check Susquehanna River Trail Association's website to ensure you are allowed to access the island. 

Your final destination will be City Island where you can catch a ball game or spend time on the beach among many other activities.

Navigational Hazards:

  • There are rapids around mile 78 and 76, so pay attention to your surroundings and check water gagues before beginning your trip.
