    WTC Paddling Trip
    North Branch of Potomac River
    Class II-III
    May 13-14, 2023

    This is a release weekend for the North Branch of Potomac which is a 6 mile stretch from Barnum, WV to  Bloomington, MD. Fairly continuous rapids with waves/holes and only short stretches of moving water  between rapids. Estimating release to be between 800 cfs (Class II-III) to 1200 cfs (easy Class III).  Expect cold water from a bottom-of-the-dam release (50 degrees). This stretch is a lot a fun and we will  be paddling both days of the weekend. There is a small fee collected at the put in so bring cash. Please email John or Mary Koeppe at koeppejm at gmail dot com to sign up or contact Mary 608-698-4899.

    Google Maps: Take Out

    Google Maps: Put In

    I know this is old school, but I like maps and cell phone reception in order to use Google Maps (or such) out there is spotty.  I have a jpg image of a map of the takeout in Bloomington.  I couldn’t figure out how to upload that image here.  I can upload it to the Facebook page, or you can email me if you want me to send it to you.
