Juniata River


On March 7, 2012 the WooFDriver took the WooFPAK on a mushing tour of The Lower Trail in Blair, Pennsylvania. The history of this corridor goes back to the 1830’s, as part of the Pennsylvania Canal. This was a system of waterways connecting Philadelphia to Pittsburgh used to transport goods.

Along The Lower Trail runs the 104 mile long Juniata River, the second largest tributary of the Susquehanna River. Native Americans lived in the river’s valley until a treaty was made in 1755 that let white settlement east of the Allegheny Ridge. Angry natives raided these settlements, killing over 3,000 settlers. In present day the river is a popular destination for recreational purposes as canoeing, kayaking and fishing.
