Afternoon trip

Trip Overview

Paddled the Conestoga River. Left from West Earl Park and paddled to Pearlman Park. Took my son and I 2 1/2 hrs. Some areas of River are very shallow (2-6 inches). Very peacefully. Passes under covered bridge on Hunsicker rd. Smaller kayak recommended. I have a Loon 138 (13ft 8in) vessel which did make portage a little challenging.
