Early Morning Allegheny River Paddle: Buckaloons to Wildwood

  • Wildwood Lane Tidioute, PA 16351 United States (map)

This one's for all the early risers that like to "wake up with the Allegheny"... it's hard to beat paddling through early morning fog as the sun rises.

We'll be meeting at Wildwood at 5:30 am to shuttle everyone to Buckaloons to begin. (Please be mindful of neighbors at Wildwood this early in the morning. Upon arrival, we'll quickly load up boats on our trailers and head to Buckaloons to launch.)

We'll be paddling 7.5 miles from Buckaloons to Wildwood, ending at our vehicles. This stretch of river passes by Crulls and Thompson Islands (designated Wilderness Islands), typically taking roughly 2 hours with a leisure paddle. For those that need to get to work, you have the option to paddle ahead to your vehicle if needed.

Bringing your own kayak is always welcome ($15 shuttle, $7 if you purchased your boat at AO), rentals are available if needed ($40/kayak).

Reservations required for logistics, even if you're bringing your own kayak, if you need a shuttle, please let us know. Email piper@alleghenyoutfitters.com, or call (814) 723-3030 for more information. Hope to see you on the river!
