Gather for a Witches and Warlocks Stand Up Paddle on the New River on Sunday, October 30th. We will be meeting at the upper Fayette Station Parking lot. Attendees need to sign a waiver in advance, must know how to swim, and wear PFDs. This event is not designed for first-time paddlers. Paddlers must be confident in maneuvering boards.
We will launch at the upper beach at Fayette Station wearing PFDs paddling approximately 500 yards upstream on the flat water back to the beach. This is a leisure paddle but keep in mind that the current of the river can be challenging for beginners.
This is a limited ticket event capped at a maximum of 70 participants to meet the requirements of our permit. If you reserve a spot and can’t attend, please let us know so we can open the spots to give others a chance to join in the fun. This also allows us to have space for vehicle parking and allows for ease of launch and exit from the river. You must pre-register to attend and fill out a waiver. We encourage participants to carpool or utilize the upper overflow parking area. In the event that water levels are too high on the river, we will make a decision before the event and move the event to Kanawha Falls, if water levels are unsafe at the falls we will be forced to cancel.
