Paddle the section of the Neuse River from Smithfield Town Commons to Richardson Bridge Road. 27.5 mile tract so it is a little over a marathon. This section is all flat water and is suitable for beginner as well as experienced paddlers. We will stop every couple hours to stretch & potty. Be sure to bring plenty of water, snacks, & lunch.
THIS PADDLE WILL TAKE APPROX. 10 HOURS....know your physical abilities and your own mental toughness. This is open to everyone but only you can determine if you are up to the challenge.
We will meet at 6:00am at the parking lot of Covenant Love Church on Dunn Rd Fayetteville (Empty parking lot on Saturdays) for all wishing to carpool. Carpool etiquette will apply (split the fuel cost with everyone in the car). Anyone not wanting to carpool can meet at Smithfield Town Commons Park at 7:15. We will unload boats and shuttle automobiles down to the take out at Richardson Bridge and then be on the water by 8:00am.
