Join us for an 8 mile paddle on the beautiful Braden River. We'll launch from Linger Lodge and paddle 4 miles to Jiggs Landing, a newly renovated Manatee County park...a perfect rest stop, with full facilities. When we return to Linger Lodge, those who wish to can stay for lunch in the "old Florida" restaurant's screen porch overlooking the water.
The paddle is open only to members who have agreed to the waiver on their profile page. Because guests are unable to agree to the waiver, there is no provision for bringing guests to this trip.... we encourage your friends to join Kayak Explorers.
Please arrive by 9:30 and be in the water and ready to paddle at 10:00. If, on day of paddle, the forecast is for heavy rain, check the website to see if the paddle is cancelled. I will also email everyone who has RSVPd if the trip is cancelled.
The launch ramp is concrete with an adjacent earth area for kayaks.
Drive to the left of the restaurant and down a slope to find the ramp on your right, behind the restaurant. Unload, then please move your vehicle to the parking lot....this is private property.
