We'll walk on the trails at Yates Mill for about 45 minutes, then hop in our cars and drive about 2 miles down Lake Wheeler Road to Lake Wheeler. There we'll rent canoes or kayaks (singles or doubles) for $5 per hour and take them out on the lake. The lake is beautiful and calm---great for beginners---and has lots of waterfowl including great blue herons, egrets and if you're lucky, a bald eagle. Wear water shoes and quick dry pants. If you take out a kayak, you will get quite wet. Wear sunscreen and bring water.
