Overview:

This RiverPalooza trip is a partnership between Potomac Riverkeeper Network, the Piscataway Conoy Tribe, the National Park Service, and the Accokeek Foundation. We are honored to have leaders of the Piscataway Conoy tribe provide a pre-paddle cultural history presentation, then guide and provide interpretation of cultural resources along the one-way 3 mile paddle (beginner level) from Piscataway Park’s visitor center to Farmington Landing. Piscataway Creek was home to the leader’s town of the Piscataway at Moyaons, and it remains a special place to the tribe today. This section of the tidal Potomac contains portions of three national trail routes, including the Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail.

Following your river excursion, you will be shuttled back to the visitor center, where you can journey back in time as you explore Piscataway Park including the National Colonial Farm where costumed interpreters engage visitors in learning about the environment through a historical lens. Kayak rentals available from Atlantic Kayak: $85 tandem, $65 single. Trip is $35 if you bring your own.
