Weather permitting, RiversEdge is now open for canoe, kayak and raft trips on the Little Miami River weekends from 10-4 with trips leaving every hour on the hour. We are also open most good weather weekdays but it is always good to call ahead on a weekday. Hope to see you out on the river!
While it is still a bit too cold for us to open we are getting closer! We need a string of near 70 degree days to warm the temperature of the river.
In keeping with our 26 year tradition of providing only the best equipment available we have almost completed our sale of last years kayaks and have taken receipt of this years kayaks. We have 50 brand new kayaks available from Perception, Wilderness Systems and our newest manufacturer Jackson Kayak. Over 5 models are available from Perception and Wilderness and include mostly sit-in kayaks to fit most paddlers. Jackson is providing both an extremely popular sit-on top kayak and a kayak that is designed for children from 50 to 100 pounds. We also have several tandem kayaks for 2 paddlers. Please keep in mind that many rentals have 1 or maybe 2 types of kayaks that are used over and over for many seasons until they are pretty much junk. At RiversEdge we are committed to operating in a different manner. We sell all of our rental kayaks before the start of the season so that we can always have nice new kayaks for our customers. We even offer a better paddle to make the most of your experience on the river. We invite you to come out and paddle a brand new kayak!
We are excited to offer the best canoes and kayaks available by any outfitter in the Midwest. Our newest addition is the Paluski canoe made in Ontario Canada. This is a the first canoe that is designed with a 3rd seat for a 3rd adult or for 1 or 2 children to ride in the middle. I have been working with Paluski owner Graham Wilkins to make minor improvements to a already great boat. RiversEdge will be the only outfitter in the Midwest to have this 3 seater on the water this season. Remember friends don’t let friends paddle those nasty old aluminum beaters. Treat yourself to the best and “paddle a Paluski”.
We have been busy clearing the river of obstacles. These are usually trees which have fallen over the winter, or have been moved by high water events. All sections have been floated multiple times at different water levels to try to remove most of the things that could cause problems. As you can see from the accompanying photos we have removed some large trees. We also trim hanging branches that would interfere with passage of canoes, kayaks or rafts. Our goal is always to create the best possible river conditions for our guests, while maintaining the natural character of a Scenic River like the Little Miami River. We invite you to check it out in person in the near future.
Here at RiversEdge we are busy preparing for a new season on the river. We have ordered new canoes, kayaks, rafts and pfds. As usual we will start the season with about 50 all new kayaks. Starting with new kayaks each season allows RiversEdge to offer the highest quality boats for your use. Keep in mind that our competitors use the same old equipment year after year. We are hoping for a early spring and will offer trips on the river as soon as the weather allows. We will make a posting as soon as we are offering trips, but feel free to email or call to check. Thanks and hope to see you on the river this spring.
