Clarion River Paddling Program: Portland Mills-Arroyo Bridge


Cook Forest State Park will be conducting a 6-mile interpretive historical paddling program from Portland Mills to Arroyo Bridge for experienced canoeists/kayakers only. This section of river is rich in local history. We will pass evidence of the old log booms & mills at Portland Mills as well as bridge remnants of the Clarion River Railway. Come see where John Cobb’s mill was located before he was flooded out at Beech Bottom. Bald eagles & osprey often make an appearance in this secluded wilderness section of the National Wild & Scenic Clarion River. We will meet promptly at the Park Office and car-pool to the starting point up-river. Remember to pack water, protective footwear, raingear, and change of clothes. Don’t forget your fishing poles! Cost is $50/boat with check or money order made out to ‘Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’. Lunch provided to those who register by 7/19. Prior Cook Forest kayak training participants receive a 50% discount. Space is limited, so please reserve early, pre-registration required.
