Launching from private docks at our historic 150 year old Outfitters shop in downtown Paris. Paddling past the town’s historic riverside architecture, you soon leave civilization behind as nature offers plenty to see & do. A relaxing section of the Grand River, with dashes of small swifts to keep your interest piqued. View Great Blue Herons, Ospreys, Mallard ducks, turtles & perhaps white-tailed deer along the riverbank with an occasional Bald Eagle. Stop & explore rare Carolinian forest lining the banks of the Grand.
As you near the Trip’s end in Brant Park, the river forms a 3 km long lake. A great thing about this Trip is you can land soon as you reach our Landing at Brant Park, or you stretch out your trip in Brant’s Lake, paddling past our landing to explore the park’s shoreline & several islands. With little current in ‘the lake’ you can easily paddle back up to our landing after some extra exploring.
After landing you’ll be on your way home when our shuttle picks you up with some great memories to last you till your next trip.
Park in Paris & riding our shuttle back from Brant Park Conservation Area after your trip saves you the Park’s $6/person Entrance Fee. As an alternative you can park at Brant Conservation & ride our shuttle to Paris before your trip and then paddle back to your vehicle. park entrance fee is $6/person.
