Self–guided fall float trips on the Blanchard River Water Trail are available on select Saturdays and Sundays from mid-September to early-November. Float trips begin and end at Zonta Landing at Riverside Park Waterfront. Canoeists and kayakers have the opportunity to enjoy the late summer green and early autumn brilliance along the Blanchard River as they paddle upstream past the Country Club’s golf course, Eastpoint Area, and Vogelsong Conservation Area to the State Route 568/Sandusky Street Bridge and back. The trip takes approximately 2 hours. Trips will be cancelled in the event of flooding, rain, thunder and lightning, and strong wind.
