Overview

Pennsylvania is a paddler’s heaven and one of America’s most blessed states when it comes to total miles of rivers and streams. Add in its many lakes, and there is quite simply all kinds and manner of waters where you can set out in a canoe, kayak, or raft. Paddling Pennsylvania describes the best and most accessible routes—fifty classics in all, from Lake Erie’s Presque Isle lagoons to the Allegheny River, from the Susquehanna to the Delaware. Carefully chosen to be within the ability of most beginning to intermediate paddlers, some routes offer wilderness paddling while others are closer to population centers, but all feature good access points, great scenery, wildlife, and opportunities to have fun.

A full-time journalist — Frye is outdoors editor of the Tribune-Review newspaper in Pittsburgh — he’s written countless articles on the region’s woods and wildlife for newspapers and regional and national magazines.
