A once popular event, a canoe and kayak outing on beautiful Pisgah Reservoir, is being revived this October 7th by the Friends of Pisgah.  The Reservoir features numerous islands and a varied shoreline with stunning rock formations. The largest body of water in the Park is remote so this event is a rare opportunity.  All are invited.

Folks will assemble at the lower Pisgah State Park trailhead parking lot on NH Route 119 between Ashuelot and Winchester so we can ready the boats for hauling.  Car parking will be at the upper lot on Reservoir Road in Pisgah State Park.

The event will run from 10AM to 3 PM and preregistration is required.  Contact FOP at FriendsofPisgah@gmail.com to register.   Complete and sign the attached registration form.  Either send the signed form to: Friends of Pisgah, Inc., PO Box 134, Chesterfield, NH 03443 or bring with you to the event.

FOP volunteers will shuttle boats and gear to the water up the steep road to the Reservoir where parking is limited.

Participants should bring their own boat; paddles; a life preserver for each person is mandatory; water and lunch.  Be prepared to hike from the upper parking lot. It is a steep road to the Reservoir as parking is limited to boat transport vehicles. Those unable to hike can be accommodated in boat transports upon request.

The rain date will be the following day Sunday, 10/8/17.
