The Flat Mouth of the Susquehanna

Paddle from Perryville Community Park up the mouth of the Susquehanna River and around Garrett Island.

Explore hundreds of acres of undeveloped land and keep your eyes peeled for eagles, herons, kingfishers, and many other species. As you travel north up to circumnavigate Garrett Island, make sure to cross under the route 40 bridge to avoid boat traffic. The best time to paddle around the Susquehanna flats is at low tide when the water can be anywere from 1/2 foot to 5 feet deep. Being this shallow keeps boat traffic down and is safer for paddlers.
