The river was gorgeous in the fall. But what made the trip wasn't the scenery or even the experience of the guides. What made the trip was the hospitality of our guides! I'd say with this group of guys that went above and beyond to help our team feel encouraged, educated and accomplished, that is what made it possible to... More

It is not often that I am surprised but I was blown away at the quality of the experience that we had with Shane the trail guide/biologist. He took my troop on a guided hike that was physically challenging but not exhausting. He pointed out dangers in the forest like animal life and nettles. He helped us identify mushrooms and... More

No complaints about the rafting trip, which was organized as part of a training course at work. Guides were courteous and informative. Had some miscommunication about the details of our trip and difficulty with our shuttle to the Outfitters from DC, but nothing beats a day out of the office and on the river.

This was my first time to MD, very welcoming guides and well prepared. Excellent lunch on the riverside, simple and delicious. I had a wonderful experience with my guide Sean, he was energetic and funny. Sean also showed skilled and compassion for his job as guide on the raft. It was a beautiful day in the beginning of fall:) I... More

We went on the Boat and Brewery trip on the Monocacy River. The fall colors were starting to come out, so the scenery was beautiful. We saw 2 bald eagles flying low over the river. Our guides were very knowledgeable and made the trip really fun. Thanks Christina, Maury, and Shane. This section of the river was pretty docile with... More

I went out as part of a group to kayak down the Monocacy River with Shane, Maury, and Christina. The guides did a great job telling us what to expect and teaching us the basics of kayaking for those of us who were less familiar. The scenery was fantastic, especially since we went out during fall. I would go on... More

We went on a kayaking trip and had a great time. The leaves were changing so the river was gorgeous. We even saw a few bald eagles. Our guides Maury, Christina, and Shane were good as well! They taught us proper paddling technique among other fun things.

My daughter and I took a white water rafting trip with River and Trail and loved it! I was impressed with how well kept River and Trail is. The boat house is neat and organized, they were ready for us when we arrived. Our river guide was Travis Wilklow and he was fabulous! Travis really knows his stuff! I felt... More

For the past several years, my school has taken a 10th grade class trip with anywhere from 60-80 girls to Harper's Ferry, WV. We had a great time again this year with Mike and Maury biking a short distance on the C&O Canal Towpath from Brunswick, MD to Harper's Ferry, WV. They brought in all of the bikes, made sure... More

If you want to have a great day away from the hustle and bustle of the city or suburbs take a day trip to Harpers Ferry and bike along the Potomac river. We always use River and Trail Outfitters. They can accommodate any group size. No need to bring anything. They have it all for very reasonable prices and super... More
