Almost Full Moon Kayak Run

Join me and Angie for a night run down the Salt River by moon light! Our last Meetup was a great success - 27 kayakers - let's do it again! Meet at 8PM on North side of bridge parking lot with glow sticks and a great attitude!! 

Boats hit the water at 8:30 sharp! This coming month of September is the HARVEST Full Moon. Hope to see you there!

    We had a great crowd on our last trip but I hear the water is very low now. More than likely that was the last moonlight run - if anything changes adventurers...I will keep y'all informed!!

    Peeps were great and the adventure was worth the price of admission :)

      Sorry I'm pretty newb. I've never kayaked the lower salt or ever gone tubing. I don't know the launchpoint locations. The event just points to n power road. Can u humor me and provide detailed xroads? I also have a truck and could help with transportation back and forth if needed!

      Hi Jason - no worries. Okay - if you at the xroads for the tubing company...head northeast on Power Rd (past the tubing company) and continue until you go over the bridge (for the Salt River). You can immediately go either to the left or right for picnic/parking areas. Turn on the left into the parking area and we normally meet under the 1st picnic table area. See you tonight!

    I was just on the river this past Saturday. It is running very slow and the water level is low in many spots. Just an FYI. I am also wondering where people are planning on taking out so we can arrange transportation and shuttles for the kayaks when we are finished. Just curious. Looking forward to seeing everyone on Sat night.

      Yes, the flows are now on the low side, so watch for rocks. Here's one source for the Lower Salt river's flow http://www.watershedm...­

    what if you don't have a kayak? are they easy to rent?

    September 20, 2013

    • Joe

      It should be pretty easy - I've seen a lot people rent from the AZ Hiking Shack - www.hikingshack.com.

    Don't forget to get your glow sticks for kayaks and your pass before you come to the river people! Bring water and maybe a light windbreaker. The nights are getting cooler on the water. :-)

    Lower Salt map you may find quick and easy to view. www.azcsi.com/Draft/lowersalt2.jpg gives you a fix on the bridge, Sutton and Granite.
