My wife and I took a great September kayak trip on Darby creek at Trapper Johns canoe livery. We will do it again. We saw a lot of wildlife, turtles, fish, and birds! The small rapids were also great fun!

Trapper John's is busy during the summer months so I would recommend going before noon. Our family went on the 4 mile/2 hour trip. It goes really fast. We liked it better than Mohican because it is less "wild" and less crowded.

We rented 4 kayaks and chose the 1-2 hour trip. It was amazing. All downstream w pick up at the end. A few small waterfalls added just enough excitement. A perfect day! Thanks to great staff at checkout, the store, and pick up crew.

Its a great trip for those that just want to be on the water for a few hours. Trip is not real long and would be great for beginners.
