I am planning a Kayaking trip for Memorial Day weekend (May 28-30) on the Potomac River. We’d essentially have three full days and were hoping to go from Harpers Ferry, WV to Algonkian or Riverbend in VA.
I guess my questions are:
- My boyfriend is experienced and I am kind of a newbie (only been out a few times on day trips) - Is this stretch okay for someone new?
- Is this stretch do-able in the amount of time we have? If not any recommendations on alternatives?
- We’ve had a lot of rain recently and I believe we’re expected to have more next week so is it still safe with faster water even though there aren’t that many rapids?
- Any other information on best places to drop in, come out, safety, camping spots and well, ANYTHING would be great.
Thanks so much!
