Kayaks, SUPs and canoes are welcome. We will launch from Lake Ridge Park at 2 PM, so those needing rentals should get there at 1:30 PM. I decided to use a reservation system for the SUP's. Ask to reserve a SUP but don't assume you have it until you get a confirmation from me. There is no need to reserve a kayak. The park has 14 of them, plus tandems.
We will head toward the dam. There is a nice rest area and easy place to land and launch near our turnaround point. I will demonstrate some stokes, maneuvers, and rescues for kayaks and SUPs at the rest area. Our total distance will be about 4 miles, but those who want more distance can head up Hooes Run Creek near the dam and make it a 6 mile day. This meetup is appropriate for beginners and recreational kayaks and SUP's. SUP rental is $20 and Kayak is $15.
