Join in on what has become a tradition for Dayton’s paddlesports community, the Wednesday Nite Paddle down our local waterway, the Mad River.  Enjoy the transition from an urban wilderness to the downtown Dayton skyline.  We paddle approximately three miles of what is considered “moving water” from Eastwood MetroPark to the Keowee Street Bridge.  This river trip generally takes 1 ¼ to 1 ½ hours.

Shuttles leave from Whitewater Warehouse at approximately 5:30 and 6:15.  Equipment and shuttle slots are available on a first come first serve basis.  Dress to get wet, and be ready to have some Fun!
