River Trail Outfitters

Nourish the spirit of your inner explorer by embarking on an outdoor adventure. Travel a local waterway on one of River Trail Outfitters’ many rafts, tubes, kayaks or canoes; investigate the land on two wheels, on foot or while zipping through trees; and be sure to catch the sunrise. Outdoor enthusiasts are encouraged to spend the night camping on the C&O Canal. –EC / rivertrail.com

Canoe or kayak the mighty Potomac to Tarara Winery for a day of relaxation, music, food and wine in abundance during River Trail Outfitters’ Paddle to the Winery. Revel in the froth of a Potomac River tributary and later in that of an ice cold craft beer during the Boat & Brew Paddle tour. Seafarers will kayak to the Barley and Hops Microbrewery, enjoy a tasting and pick their preferred pints to sip and savor. Spend the day paddling the Shenandoah River, basking in the vistas of the Blue Ridge Mountains and enjoying the spirits of the Bloomery Plantation Distillery. Sample liqueurs, tour the farm and delight in live music while taking part in River Trail Outfitters’ Paddle to the Sweet Shine.
