    Default River Soar - Day Trip suggestions

    Hi All,

    I don't know the River Soar that well but would like to do a couple of day trips on it.

    Please, could any members who know the River suggest some day trips?

    Both the wife and I are reasonably good canoeists, at one time I would have a quick look at a River and go canoe it, however, these days I am a lot more cautious.

    thanks

    Paul

    Have a look at the link below, I know a lot put in at the Boathouse pub in Barrow.

    The route from Barrow up to Pillings lock then onto the backwater and back to Barrow is a nice route of about 12 miles

    Hope that helps

    There are a couple that work from Barrow, both on Paddlepoints:

    Both require a little portaging, and some weirs which may or may not "go". Have a look at the post about last summer's "Biggish meet" for an idea: http://www.songofthepaddle.co.uk/for...-2017-The-Blog
