Welcome to Paddle Trails Canoe Club!!
We paddle canoes, kayaks and inflatables. We paddle rivers, lakes and salt water. We paddle for fun, adrenaline, scenery and wilderness. Yep, we’re probably paddling something, somewhere right now!!

Canoe Tripping: August 27 and September 10-11
“ As the canoe glided silently by, the lynx watched warily, then stood up and in a moment was gone into the bushes lining the river.”
Do you have the desire to experience wilderness from a canoe, but lack the knowledge to plan and execute a canoe trip?

We were headed to the Sauk the following weekend and offered for them to join us. Here is some lovely footage they offered in return for our services.
