Outdoor Adventure: Kayak/Canoe the D&R Canal

Kayaking / Canoeing the D&R Canal

Franklin Township, NJ

Sunday May 20th

(Weather Permitting)

With only a slight current, the D&R Canal is the perfect waterway for beginners and families.  If you don’t have your own kayak / canoe, you can rent one at Griggstown Canoe and Kayak Rental!


We will start our kayak / canoe adventure at approximately 1 PM from the D&R Canal State Park adjacent to the Griggstown Canoe and Kayak Rental, 1076 Canal Road, Princeton (Franklin Township), NJ 08540. If you plan to rent a kayak or canoe, make sure to get there early as they do not take reservations. 

If you like, bring a picnic lunch to eat at the picnic area off Canal Road before putting in.  Those who wish to can explore the Griggstown Grasslands Preserve after paddling or instead of paddling. It is a 685 acre area of both open fields and woodlands known for its nesting birds and butterflies.  It is right across the street from the kayak / canoe rental.

Geri Koblis will be our trip leader; please let her know if you plan to attend.
