The River's Edge supplies adventurers with safe boating equipment for navigating the Kiskiminetas River. Boaters choose from a selection of single-pilot kayaks or sturdy canoes, which can seat up to three average adults, two adults and two children, or an abnormally small barbershop quartet. After selecting a floater, customers are equipped with life vests and paddles, then embark on the water-wandering excursion from the shop's boat launch. River trips range from 5-mile jaunts from Vandergrift to Leechburg, to 15-mile expeditions from Avonmore to Leechburg, allowing boaters to relive the days of western exploration.
The River's Edge Canoe and Kayak
Evelyn and Neill Andritz grew up near the banks of the Kiskiminetas River and quickly became enamored with its wildlife and natural beauty. Wanting to share this passion with others, they founded The River’s Edge, where fleets of kayaks, canoes, and tubes send groups on aquatic journeys into nature.
As watercraft meander down the river, they pass the habitats of local wildlife including deer, bald eagles, geese, and feral former child stars. Alternatively, rental bicycles facilitate on-land adventures, and two primitive campsites let visitors sleep along the river's bank.
Inside The River’s Edge's shop, friendly staff members help customers to purchase kayaks and aquatic gear, or choose the best bait and tackle to catch schools of fish crackers. They also add a touch of nature to homes at a garden center.
