Stand Up Paddleboard + Hike

  • L2 Boards

    100 market street, Chattanooga, TN (map)

    35.055519 -85.309158







    It looks like we've been able to work things out with L2 Boards so that we will be able to continue again this year to offer paddle boarding events, so be sure to take advantage of this great fun opportunity.


    You MUST call L2 Boards between Monday June 24th and Sunday, July 7th to pay and register.  If you do not pay by then, you will not be considered registered, and may be removed from the event. It will then be opened up to folks on a waiting list or whomever else wants to sign up and pay.


    Come join the Chattanooga Hiking Meetup and L2 Boards for an EcoTour of the Tennessee River and Maclellan Island in Downtown Chattanooga. We will meet at L2 Boards in Downtown Chattanooga, where you will be given all your gear and receive instruction on how to paddleboard (so don't worry if you've never done it before ... just come eager to have a great time trying something new).  You will then be taken on a tour of the river, rocky cliffs, and wildlife refuge. The tour lasts approximately 2 hours, and will include time spent paddling approximately 2 miles on the water, and then hiking a nature trail on Maclellan Island.


    Once we arrive at the island, Ellie will lead the group on a 2 mile easy (yes, we have been told that it is easy) hike.  The terrain is flat and smooth, and the trail is wide.  After the short hike, we will resume paddling the 2 miles back to where we started.  It should be a great time full of trying new things, having fun with others, and getting in some paddle boarding and hiking mid-week. Wear sandals or whatever for hike on Island, snacks if desired, water, and your camera if you want, to enjoy this trip. You may also want to bring a dry bag or zip-lok bag to ensure that your items do not get wet if they go swimming. :-)


    Meeting Time: hit the water at 6:30pm......please arrive 15-20 minutes early to sign waivers, etc. so that we can hit the water by 6:30


    Finishing Time: estimated to be 8:30pm


    Meeting Place: L2 Boards in downtown Chattanooga


    Cost: CHM group discounted price of $25/person

    (includes equipment rental and instructions)


    Age Limitations: 12 and Older


    You MUST call L2 Boards to pay and register. If you do not pay, you will not be considered registered, and may be removed from the event. It will then be opened up to folks on a waiting list or whomever else wants to sign up and pay.

    The group size will be limited, so we encourage you to rsvp on this meetup page, and then contact L2 Boards as soon as possible.


    L2 Boards' hours:

    12:00 Noon until 8:00 PM M thru Sat.

    12:00 Noon till 6:00 PM on Sunday.


    ***  Please be sure to let them know that you are part of the Chattanooga Hiking Meetup, and the date of this event, so that the discount rate of $25.00 will be applied.  Once you have paid, please update your rsvp status to indicate that (or make a comment below).

    It is with regret that we must cancel this event due to unsafe water conditions at this time. Due to recent heavy and continuous rains, the river's water level and current strength present too high of a risk. We will be scheduling several other SUP events from July through September (our intent is to schedule bi-weekly), so you will be able to use your paid credit for another event. Feel free to email me at [masked] if you have any questions. Again, we apologize for the inconvenience, but the safety of our members must always come first.

    I checked with L2 Boards this evening, and removed anyone from the attendance list that L2 Boards indicated had not paid.

    is it possible to attend in kayaks? there are two of us and this event sounds great.

    July 5, 2013

    • Rhonda

      This is an SUP event. If you are interested in doing an after work kayaking event, shoot me an email at [masked], and we can see if we can set something up. Otherwise, this event is strictly intended as an SUP event.

    Hey, I'm not sure what happened but I just got notification that I was removed from the group for Thursday. I paid for my reservation a couple weeks ago but please let me know if something went wrong. Hopefully I can fix it so I can still go. Thanks!

    • Rhonda

      Please call me. [masked]

    Just a reminder, folks ... please be sure to call L2 Boards to get your spot confirmed. There are folks on a waiting list that are wanting to participate, so if you are on the going list, please make your reservation confirmed by making your payment in advance.

      I have a coupon or something for a freebie, Rhonda, that's why I did not pay, and you removed me apparently. That's ok. I've been lots of times so it will allow some SUP newbies to try this. Enjoy.

      July 8, 2013

    • Rhonda

      You did not indicate anything of this, so since you had not paid, you were removed to allow others to participate. Next time, please be sure to let us know. We do not hold spots when folks are on a waiting list. Sorry.

    I'd like to get in on this in the future, but what if I have my own board? What is the cost then since I wouldn't need to rent equipment or have instruction?

    June 30, 2013

    • Anne W.

      Rhonda, have you sent the email yet? If so, I haven't gotten it yet. Thanks

      July 3, 2013

    • Rhonda

    June 24, 2013

    • Ellie B.

      Alli your guest will have to sign up separately. Thanks!

  • Cathy G.

    I assume since I am wait-listed I won't pay them until someone drops. Let me know if I am wrong. Thanks, Cathy

    June 26, 2013

    • Rhonda

      Yes, but stay on the list because if someone doesn't pay on time, then you'll be moved up and have an opportunity to pay.

      June 26, 2013

  • Linda B.

    I am registered and paid up :)
