Get to the River

GTTR 2020 FB Event Cover

Paddle along a beautiful stretch of the Jordan River, then bike back along the route and catch the scenery in reverse!

North Salt Lake, Jordan River Commission, and Davis County are once again sponsoring a canoe/kayak trip on a beautiful stretch of the Jordan River as part of the annual “Get To The River Festival.” We will be staging with boats at 8:30 am (details below). The takeout will be at Porter’s Landing (50 South Jordan River Drive in NSL). A shuttle will be available for those who need transportation back to their vehicles. Some boats and life jackets will be available, at no cost, to those who are interested.

This year, we are also including a bike ride back to your vehicles on the Jordan River Trail (approximately 3 miles) following the boat trip. If you would like to participate in the bike ride, please drop off your bikes/helmets at Porter’s Landing prior to meeting for the boat trip at 8:30am. There will be someone available to stay with your bikes at the boat takeout until you arrive.

Please wear a mask any time that social distancing is not possible. Please print and sign the waiver at the link below, and bring it with you. Some blank copies of the waiver will be available the day of the event.
