Plainsboro, NJ,
New Jersey, Central,
NJ United States


Registration is required for this activity.


Enjoy up to a seven-mile paddle up and back on the Millstone River. You'll be surprised how remote and quiet this little river can be. Once we pass under Route 1, the waterway narrows to enjoy a serene flatwater paddle with little current and away from road noise. There is the potential for quite a bit of wildlife. Birdwatchers will love this area! Bring a lunch and we'll stop for a break to eat somewhere on the river. We'll cancel if there is heavy rain forecasted. You will need your own boat and don't forget your PFD. Boat rentals are not available at this location.You are welcome to join us for a bite to eat afterward. The river is somewhat shaded by the canopy of trees overhead but expect to get some sun along the way. Please note that there are no restrooms at the put in or along the trip with the closest bathrooms are at nearby hotels about ½ mile away. Carry a face covering, mask, or bandana for times when you cannot correctly distance yourself from other participants. Participants must also be willing to practice social distancing on the paddle. Please bring your own hand sanitizer. The trip is limited to 8 participants + two leaders. You MUST register on, which includes e-signing the waiver, AND receive confirmation of your approval. Anyone who comes without registering will not be allowed. Each paddler must register, you can't register for someone else. If you are not feeling well, do not come on the ride.

Brian's passion is enjoying the outdoors. He especially loves hiking, biking, and kayaking. Over the past 30 years, he has planned and led many weekend camping getaways mostly involving biking, hiking, rafting, canoeing, and kayaking for AMC, Mosaic, and other local outdoor groups. He is a bike, hike, and paddle leader for the NoNJ/NY chapter of AMC leading twenty trips in the last five years including three camping weekends.


I mainly paddle flatwater across New Jersey although I have begun learning whitewater. I am a member of the National Canoe Safety Patrol for the upper Delaware River.
