Moose River Trips
Gear & Bike Rentals
Mountainman Outdoor Supply Company invites you to explore our wonderful Adirondack wilderness with a canoe or kayak trip on the beautiful North Branch of the Moose River. Enjoy the splendid scenery as you paddle along with the gently moving water. We’ve worked out all of the details, so all you have to do is enjoy your trip! We’ll shuttle you to the start point and you end up back at our store. With two different day trips to choose from, there’s plenty to see. Call us at 315-369-6670.
What is included in the rental price?
Boat, Paddles, PFD’s (life jacket), and shuttle up river. Mountainman starts every season with new (and the most comfortable) canoes and kayaks to help insure a pleasant river trip.
What should I wear?
Shirts, pants and shorts that dry quickly are best. Sneakers or sandals for footwear. Sunglasses and hats are recommended. Swimsuits are a must in summer.
What should I bring?
Pack snacks and drinks, perhaps a picnic lunch; there are numerous sandbars to stop at and relax and swim. Sunscreen and bug repellent is also suggested. To keep small children occupied perhaps a small toy that floats and a small inexpensive dip net and a small plastic collection jar to view waterlife.
Cameras are always a good idea, but should be stored in waterproof containers. (Drybags & dryboxes are available at Mountainman Outdoor Supply Company.)
Do I need experience? Are there rapids?
The Moose River is a slow moving flat water river that winds through the beautiful Adirondack landscape. There is one short carry with an easy trail around a rock garden. It is a great trip whether your a first time paddler, or have years of experience. At put-in, we will provide a short demonstration on the basics of paddling to help make your trip more enjoyable!
Much more than just river trips!
The Moose River Outpost offers more than just river trips. You can rent canoes and kayaks for a a day, a week, or more for your own trips. Shuttle service is available for both rental boats and your own boat as well. We also offer all the accessories and gear a Family might need for a trip down the Moose.
