MSCW White Water Rafting Trip
MSCW White Water Rafting Trip
Join us for an all-day trip to Southwestern Pennsylvania to go rafting on the Youghiogheny River!
The Drive will begin in Winchester, Virginia at the WalMart SuperCenter west of Winchester, VA at 8:45 AM and follow a mix of US Highways and secondary roads with a few stretches of Interstate through West Virginia, Western Maryland, and into Pennsylvania. We'll arrive in the Ohiopyle area around 11:30 AM and have time for a lunch before checking in at Wilderness Voyageurs (https://wilderness-voyageurs.com/adventures/lower-yough-rafting/) at 1:30. Please see the website for details on the rafting portion.
After the rafting (around 5:30 PM or so), there will be a planned route home including a dinner stop, getting back to Winchester around 9:00 PM. Drivers are free to make alternate plans to get home (hurry via I-68 if you wish).
Route details, including maps and such, will be provided in the month of July.
If you're interested in signing up for the drive only (Fallingwater and other attractions are nearby), you are welcome to do so.
This event requires that you be in reasonably good health and fitness, and you should be a good swimmer. Please plan on wearing water clothing such as nylon or wool, NOT cotton which will get wet and keep you chilly. Some swimming sneakers or shoes are recommended. Bring a good hat and plenty of waterproof sunscreen.
Raft Reservations are required. Robert Combs will coordinate these. Expect to pay approximately $80 per person. Robert will contact you to collect your money and will make the reservations in early April.
