Glen Morris to Paris – Grand River Day Trip

A half day adventure-filled route running from the Village of Glen Morris to the Town of Paris. Mainly calm water mixed with mild swifts that add a little excitement. Leisurely paddling through scenic woodland makes this a great trip for all paddlers. Many novice paddlers with some skills or experience have a great time on this trip. If you are novice paddler with no experience consider taking our guided version of this trip with our experienced Paddle Canada certified guides.

There are many spots to stop on your trip along the riverbank where you can stop for a picnic lunch &/or do some exploring in the Carolinian forest or on one of the small islands.

Notable sights on this route include the Spottiswood Bluff and the deep Grand River Valley’s Carolinian Forest. There are swift water sections on the route with just one brief class 1 rapid on the route (class 1 is the scales lowest rating). Other sights are Spring Island and the majestic ‘Three Sisters’, haunting 120 year old stone bridge pillars, remnants of the Early Railway Era, that was crucial to the formation of Canada. As your trip ends you paddle out the of Carolinian Forest into picturesque Paris on the Grand River.

As people step out of their boats in Paris, the first thing on their minds is, ‘When can we do it again” It’s an experience you won’t forget!

3-hour, Self-Guided Experience

Trip Includes:
– your boat & all paddling gear
– shuttle service from parking, upriver to trip launch.
– Paddle Canada certified guides help launch you & provide instruction

At the end of the leisurely 3 hour paddle there is a 150 foot portage at the trip as you arrive in Paris. On weekends Grand Experiences staff can be available to help.

Please Note: County of Brant charges a river access fee for groups of 4 or more people using the public launch or landing on this route. Fee payable with your reservation. This route also has a 150 foot portage at the end.

Our similar Paris to Brant Park Run does not require County’s fee as it launches & lands from Grand Experiences’ own launch & landing sites. It also does not require a portage at the end.
