River & Trail

Water to Wine – Creek’s Edge Winery Tour

Kayak or canoe the mellow section of the POTOMAC RIVER  TO A local winery near Harpers Ferry

Potomac River Canoeing & kayaking to a local winery!

Paddle 6 miles on this mellow section of the Potomac River that has been described in National Park literature as, “one of the most beautiful stretches of navigable waterways in the mid-Atlantic.” Visit sand and gravel beaches, wade or go for a swim, and explore the Catoctin Creek tributary as water levels permit.
Enjoy watching the eagles soar above and spotting the many other birds that call this area home. End your day at the Creek’s Edge Winery in Lovettsville, VA next to Catoctin Creek. This winery is housed in a stunningly beautiful wilderness lodge and is the perfect place to kick back, relax, and enjoy a locally made wine tasting and pizza appetizer.

This tour is the perfect outing for couples looking for a weekend date, friends wanting to spend some time reconnecting, or groups in search of a fun day out!
