NARROWSBURG – The Upper Delaware Council’s (UDC) 28th Annual Family Raft Trip drew 115 individuals to the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River on August 7, helping to fulfill the UDC’s goal of promoting awareness and stewardship of the river through direct contact with the recreational resource.
Rafters launched from the Skinners Falls Base in the Town of Cochecton and enjoyed an exciting and scenic 10-mile paddle to the Ten Mile River Access in the Town of Tusten.
Lander’s River Trips provided the rafts, paddles, life vests, and shuttle transportation.
The turnout included 100 adults and teens, and 15 children ages 5-12 to take advantage of the livery’s discounted rates and the trip coordination provided by the UDC. Participants hailed from all over the tri-state area of New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.
The non-profit organization highlights a different section of the river each year for the family raft trip, which takes place on the first Sunday of August.
