Lower Salt River - Sunday July 7, 2013

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This will be a small,  12 yr old and older, child friendly event. We will be meeting at Pebble Beach on the upstream side of the Bridge avoiding Pinball Alley

We will meet at Pebble Beach so that the early arrivals can go
ahead and move their boats and gear to the water's edge.
(map and information about the Lower Salt can be found here
http://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/stelprdb5208044.pdf

As soon as enough people arrive, we will shuttle vehicles to the take-out
at Phon D Sutton Access Area. One driver will graciously agree to drive the drivers back to Pebble Beachs.
Later arrivals may have to leave their vehicles at Pebble Beach and ride back to their
vehicles after the paddle.

This event requires everyone to wear a PFD
(Personal Flotation Device - life vest - life jacket)
and that no alcoholic beverages be consumed during the float.
NO Exceptions!

A safety briefing will be given prior to launching on our float.

    Great kayak trip! Couldn't have asked for nicer people and weather conditions to go out on the water with.

    Look forward to more kayaking with the group.

    I wish to do this. I have to orient myself to what Pebble beach is and avoiding Pinball Alley sounds nice. How many miles is this trip?
