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!! Paddle Trails Canoe Club (PTCC) is a supportive community of paddlers who like to get out on water whenever we can and focus on safety and fun.

Winter Bash Highlights
On Saturday, February 21st Paddle Trails gathered for its annual Winter Bash. We had a great turn out and shared plenty of good food and friendship. Gear was swapped, stories were told, a few beers and glasses of wine were consumed and prizes and awards were given away. A carbon fiber Werner Bandit paddle was awarded as the trip coordinator grand prize and a fiberglass version was given as a door prize. We also want to recognize Northwest Outdoor Center in Seattle for helping sponsor additional awards. Congratulations to the lucky winners!
Getting out on the water is the heart and soul of what we're about and core to that is the yearly trip schedule. We're happy to report that we got a good head start on getting trips onto this year's schedule by asking people to sign up as coordinators at the bash. We had pretty good results with that. We still have trips to add to get the schedule filled out but we’ve got a good start.
The new web site was introduced and those in attendance gave very positive feedback.
See you at the Spring Bash in May!
