Rivers to Rails with Ohio River Scenic Railway and Paddle Perry, Inc.


Paddle Perry is partnering with Ohio River Scenic Railway to offer a 4 nmi paddle on the Mighty Ohio River from Tell City to Troy, IN!

There is exceptional history in the Perry County, Indiana vicinity. With the American Discovery Trail and the Ohio River Scenic By-Way crossing the area, and the Hoosier National Forest in the neighborhood, this should be a unique, exceptional event! The rail Depot in Tell City is a very attractive facility, as are the riverfront park and trail, along with the floodwall murals! This is one of a very few combined paddle/train events in the U.S. If you're looking for places to stay a while send a message to Paddle Perry and we'll send you links to some of our favorites!

Grab a bite to eat in Troy provided by The Kitchen Jasper after your paddle and enjoy dinner on the train back to your vehicles! Preorder your meals by calling, (812) 241-7458.

Don't worry, we'll watch your things while you're relaxing on the train!
