River Mill Park (Downtown Huntsville)
The early summer classic of the River X Paddling Series is back! The Big East River X may not be the longest event but it still is demanding and challenging. Hop in the canoe, kayak or on that paddle board and take on one of two different courses this Saturday!
The 40km course follows flat-water rivers of the upper Muskoka River and Big East River with open water paddling on Lake Vernon. The Big East River X Family/Recreation event is intended to be a social, friendly, and fun event for families, inexperienced paddlers, or those just wanting share a day on the water. Being only 9km, the course is achievable for most paddlers as it follows flat-water rivers and ventures only briefly into Lake Vernon.
The Big East River X is a great event to step up your training for the Muskoka River X or just to try your hand at paddling and get on the water.
