Level I kayak event:  This is an easy moderate paced kayak trip.  We stop and savor the wildlife in the sloughs.  New kayakers welcome.  8 miles round trip, modest pace.   Wear layers of NON COTTON CLOTHING.  Whistles are a good thing!

Safety & Bring your usual gear + snack + 1 liter water, PFD req'd.  All kayakers participate at their own risk, and assume their own assessment for safety and ability to paddle.

Directions: Hwy 50 to Folsom Blvd Folsom, passing Iron Point Rd., only to U-turn at next light, come back to nearly Iron Point, but turn right into Willow Creek entrance just east of Iron Point Rd.  Poppy passes welcome.  Otherwise $$ for parking...not sure of W/C fee.  Bring $5 + 1's.  They do ticket if no payment.
