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 and inclusive community of paddlers who like to get out on water whenever we can and focus on safety and fun. We invite you to take a few minutes to explore our site and, if you like what you see, to have you join us. We always welcome new members.

Holiday Green Lake Paddle
Paddle with the Luminaria
Saturday evening, Dec 10th
Come and help us celebrate the Holiday Season at PTCC’s annual Parade of Lighted Christmas Canoes and holiday Party Pot Luck. The pathway around Green Lake will be lit up with thousands of luminaries. Carolers will be filling the night air with song. PTCC paddlers will be filling the lake with decorated Canoes. Don’t have battery powered canoe decorations? No problem, we have plenty! Please call early to reserve which decorations you want. I always have plenty of 12-volt lights. This year I should also have enough batteries for everyone but if you have a dependable 12v battery please bring it. Some of the decoration options can be viewed in PTCC photo gallery. Some of the décor options include, the Grinch boat, Snoopy Santa, Snoopy and Woodstock dog house, Xmas candy boat, Winnie the Pooh Tigger boat, Frosty The Pirate, various other snowmen. Xmas ducks. Be cool penguin, Penguin riding Walrus, Polar Bear, & Xmas Elf
If you don’t feel like getting out on the water come see this event and take pictures. We start at south end of lake at the (Boat House) and go counter clockwise around lake. We want to be on the water between 6:00 and 6:30. Everyone is invited to join us at the Pot Luck Party held at Pat & Sarah’s home afterwards starting around 9:00 PM

Transect Films Captures Paddle Trails in Action
In mid-July Paddle Trails was contacted by Transect Films to help film a public service announcement advocating for healthy streams and rivers that feed into Puget Sound. 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.
