Grand River Tuscarora Route – Glen Morris to Brant

The Tuscarora run is the combination of the Oneida & Cayuga Runs, Glen Morris through Paris and to Brant Park, covering 25 km of river and running about 6 hours with a 150m portage midway in Paris.

The first portion runs from Glen Morris to Paris. It is a very scenic part of the Grand River, where you feel truly deep in the wilderness. A guide could take you on a fascinating hike along the hills of the river valley to a scenic lookout revealing the landscape of the river stretched out beneath you. A section with the best of both worlds: low-key rapids add fun & excitement, while calm sections allow you to relax & take in the beauty surrounding you.

The 2nd portion, Paris to Brant park run is mostly relaxing paddle, with dashes of small rapids to keep your interest piqued. This section is rife with wildlife: approach quietly and you’ll get to see great Blue Herons, Ospreys, Painted Turtles, and perhaps even deer. It is also historically important: your guide will show you the remains of a 150 year-old gypsum mine, a key to Paris’ history.

The trip ends in Brant Park Conservation Area in Brantford. We can set up camping arrangements for you if you would like to add an overnight stay to your adventure. Otherwise, you’ll be on your way home with some great memories to last you till your next trip.

Due to the duration of the trip, this run is limited to the 9:30 am start and is not recommended for beginners. The many shore hikes and stops can only be done as time permits, since boats must be back by 6pm. However, if it’s the full-experience you’re after, an overnight camping trip can be arranged.

6-Hour, Self-Guided Trip
