Let's explore some of the sloughs of redwood city!
I've yet to do these sloughs, so this will be a bit of an adventure. I'll bring some gps data to help out with the navigation. Of course, given that this is in town, you can probably navigate using your smartphone :)
Put-in at 8am to beat the wind and heat. High tide is at 9:49am. Please arrive early enough to unload and ready your canoe to launch by 8am. We will not wait for stragglers, as this could result in extra paddling against the ebb tide on the way back.
The launch area will be rather industrial, but the sloughs should be nice.
There is a launch fee of $5.00. I'm not sure if they charge canoes, but definitely bring $5.00.
Here is a map, a few pictures, and a description of the launch.
The entire loop is about 8 to 9 miles. Bring water, something to eat, and sun protection.
We will probably paddle for 2.5 to 3 hours, so I doubt we'll make the whole loop. Feel free to turn around at any point, or do the whole loop if you are up for it.
I'd recommend having some amount of canoe experience for this trip. There could be some tidal current, and a rookie canoe cap-size-for-absolutely-no-reason is no fun when you are in a muddy slough.
