COVID-19 Guidance

The COVID-19 pandemic has implications for those seeking to explore the CT Paddlers' Trail. Now is not the time to take unnecessary risks while engaging in outdoor activities. All paddlers should be 100% prepared for self-rescue and be conservative in their actions. If you do plan a trip, be self-sufficient with food, water, and shuttling. Many of the primitive campsites are open for use this summer. However, some are closed. Please check the campsite status page before embarking on your trip.

Comments

Due to the uncertainty of safety and day to day changes in how we must carry on because of Covid-19, I do not anticipate shuttling many folks this upcoming season. Hope everyone still manages to get out and enjoy some nice paddling! Be well!
