Missouri River Trip
October 15 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Join us as we paddle the Missouri River and follow a portion of the path covered by Lewis and Clark as they began their journey west through one of the most pristine and scenic stretches of the Missouri River in our region!
At a morning meetup along the Missouri River, we will provide you with everything you need for the adventure ahead and shuttle you to the put-in upstream. Our expert guides will then take you on an epic 17 mile journey in our extraordinary 29 foot voyageur canoes from Blanchette Landing Park in St. Charles to Sioux Passage Park in Florissant. Remember, no paddling experience or special equipment is necessary, we’ve got you covered!
This trip will pass through an amazing natural back channel of the river where wildlife and unique flora abound. After stopping on the sandbar of a river island, we’ll pass the spot where Lewis and Clark camped on the second night of their epic expedition on May 15th, 1804, and continue past a beautiful bluff lined bend. We’ll stop for lunch and a swim on Pelican Island and then make our way to the take-out at Sioux Passage Park. This trip is an excellent way to explore one of our region’s most prized yet unexplored natural gems!
