I want to travel by canoe from Wheeling, West Virginia to Parkersburg, West Virginia on the Ohio river.

What are the navigation considerations? Also I will have a bike and trailer for the canoe, will be interested in bike trails paralleling or intersecting the river.

  • Locks and Dams
  • Camping/accommodations
  • Launches
  • River side services (away from large cities)

Hypothetically the trip would be completed, with only muscle power, rowing or pedaling. In either a single trip or by pedaling upstream and rowing down stream, in one or more outings.
