Hiking and Paddling are two of the most popular forms of recreation. They are two of the best ways to get out and enjoy the outdoors. The Ten Mile-Runnins River Watershed Council holds several hikes and paddles throughout the year to bring people and the river together. Please check the upcoming events to see if there is one that you would be interested in. Also the TMRWC works in partnership with these resources dedicated to hiking and paddling.
