Join us for a trip down the upper Duck River from the historic Cortner Mill to the bridge on US Hwy 41 for a distance of about 9.5 river miles.

Remember to bring your safety gear, lunch, sunblock and water...

We'll meet at the Cracker Barrel on I24 East at The Sam Ridley Parkway exit in Smyrna at 7:30 am.

If you want breakfast come earlier but we will leave for the put in at 8:45 am.  7:30 am for breakfast...

Kayak will be available for a donation of $25ea...

    I am driving my van to the launch site after we leave Cracker Barrel. I'm pulling my boat trailer. I have room for 4-5 in my van if anyone wants to carpool it to Cortner Mill. I can drive back to Cracker Barrel when we are finished. It's not out of my way.
