    The Lehigh River is the lifeblood of Carbon County, supporting our tourism, our economy, and our small businesses. Alongside the river is the D&L trail where so many people can get outdoors and hike, bike, and cross country ski. The history is rich and its winding stretches carve beautifully through our peaceful mountains. As a paddler, I have experienced many rivers, but none that offer so much to so many.

    We live right next to the banks of the Shenango River, and have been intrigued by its beauty and history since we moved to Pennsylvania 25 years ago. Our mid 19th century home was part of the Underground Railroad network and we are thrilled the River Watchers have done such outstanding work to rehabilitate this lovely natural and historic resource. Visit northwest PA to enjoy the Shenango River, the Pymatuning Lake and Park, and Shenango River Lake!

    I floated the Shenango 50 years ago and had to dodge fallen trees. Major volunteer work to remove deadfall has made it “clear sailing” now!

    this river was in my hometown growing up, but not until 8 years ago, when my first kayak trip took me from Pymatuning to Greenville, did I fall in love with it.

    You can still see intact portions of the Erie Canal while floating the Shenango River. I’ve seen Bald Eagles and Blue Herons on every float! Ideal for canoes, kayaks and tubes! Also great spots for fishing! You can float from Pymatuning Lake to Shenango Reservoir and many launch places in between! Beautiful!

      Do you have property along the upper Shenango? I help out with both the Spring and Autumn Paddle Fest organized by the Shenango River Watchers non-profit.

      I agree, Nathan. What is your normal tubing route on the Shenango River? Do you put in at Pymatuning or at the Kidd’s Mill covered bridge?
