Yates Mill hike and Lake Wheeler Kayak

We'll hike at Yates Mill for about 45 minutes and then drive about 2 miles south on Lake Wheeler Road to Lake Wheeler Park and rent kayaks or canoes.  They have single and double kayaks and canoes that rent for $5 per hour.  The lake is lovely and no prior experience is required in order to kayak.  You might want to bring a bag lunch to enjoy overlooking the lake after you return your boat.  If you want to do only the kayak part, let me know, and plan to join us around 10:30 at the boat house.  If you bring your own boat there is a launching fee of $4 for Raleigh residents, $6 for non-Raleigh residents or $2 for seniors 62 and older.  Wear sunscreen and bring water.

    So sorry, guys, about not being able to rent boats. It was such a beautiful day. Who knew that they would not rent boats if the water level was too high? Hope those of you who went to the farmers' market had a good time. Four of us enjoyed our bag lunches at the lake. We'll try it again soon!

    I am going to meet at the boat house at 10:30 to kayak. I have a friend that would like to come along. Does she need her own life jacket or do they have them at the rental site?
