The 23rd annual Lehigh River Sojourn is Wildlands Conservancy’s 32.6-mile guided paddling trip on the Lehigh River. The event begins in the Pocono Mountains and ends in Easton. Sojourners travel through our region’s metro-wilderness – treasuring scenic views, visits from resident wildlife and a shared appreciation for preserving the Lehigh River.

The Lehigh River Sojourn takes place every June and timing is dependent upon the dam-release schedule.

Join us June 22-24 for Sojourn 2019!


Day 1 – Rafting through the Lehigh River Gorge

Day 2 – Jim Thorpe Train Station to Walnutport

Day 3 – Sand Island to Hugh Moore Park
