Amberleigh Park to Dublin Spring Park

Book an open rental at this location


This trip winds through a scenic, 3 mile stretch of the Scioto River in Dublin, Ohio. It travels under four bridges including the impressive new Dublin Link Pedestrian Bridge. When you finish, you'll be steps away from the many dining and entertainment options in the Historic Dublin and Bridge Park area. The trip typically takes about 2 hours which includes equipment preparation and 1-1.5 hours on the river (depending on the river current and how fast you are paddling). Ages 4+. See our Rentals Q&A for more details.

Maximum riders and weight per kayak

Each kayak can hold 1-2 riders or 2 riders and a small child weighing less than 50lbs. This trip has a combined max weight of 250lbs per kayak. Kayaks with less weight take on less water and are easier to paddle. If possible, we recommend 1 rider per kayak rather than 2 or 3.

This trip is dependent on the Scioto River level

We use the USGS website to monitor the Scioto River levels (height and streamflow). We find a good range for this trip is 4-5 ft and 200-1000 ft³/s. If there are currently few or no dates available for this trip it is likely because the Scioto River is (or will likely be) outside of those ranges. If you book a trip when the river is outside of those ranges, please keep in mind that there may be additional "challenges" like navigating more turbulent water (high water levels) or needing to walk alongside your kayak in places (low water levels).

Location and parking

This trip start at Amberleigh Park (4715 Vista Ridge Dr, Dublin, OH 43017). Enter the park, drive down the hill, park at the bottom, and meet us at the loop on the north side of the parking lot. The trip finishes at Dublin Spring Park. Because we do not facilitate these trips on an hourly basis for large groups, we do not currently provide return transportation to Amberleigh Park. If your group has multiple cars, we recommend that you drop one off near Dublin Spring Park before the rental or you can purchase a rideshare service to Amberleigh Park for about $10-$15.
