Ho Ho HO! Riverhills to Rotary Park.

Please join me for a Xmas Morning paddle on the Hillsborough. We will launch from Riverhills and paddle up to Rotary park for a picnic under the trees. This paddle is apprximately 5.5 miles each way.

Hillsborough River Info:
A 34.5-mile (55.5 km) canoe trail is designated by the State of Florida, starting at Hillsborough River State Park and ending at Rowlett Park in Tampa. Morris Bridge Park, Trout Creek Wilderness Park, Hillsborough River State Park Lettuce Lake Park, Riverfront Park, Riverhills Park, Angel of Hope Park, Rogers Park, Sulphur Springs Water Tower, and Rivercrest Park are all are located along the Hillsborough River.

**START TIME**
On the water at 11:00 am sharp. If you are late, paddle maniacally upstream until you find the group enjoying a casual paddle.
**STUFF**
Make sure to bring water, food, sunblock, bug gunk, and safety gear. There are restroom facilities in the park. Oh, you might want to bring a kayak, too......!

Give me a call at[masked]=0353 if you have any questions!

    What time do you expect to be off the water? Also, if this is an upstream paddle, how much current is there and how difficult to go against the current on this river?

      The current is noticeable the first 1/2mile. Then it gets wider and is fine. 3.8 miles upstream. Picnic at the park then turn around and go back.

    Sorry, I see you already answered my question about what time the trip would end.
    Thanks

    Probably 2:30 or 3. But if you needed to leave earlier you could just turn around sooner since we are paddling upstream...

    We spent a great Thanksgiving on the water with you last year--looking forward to having a Christmas paddle. Happy Holidays! Eileen
