Explore beautiful Cedar Creek near Cave Spring with CRBI supporters, Cedar Creek Park. This 5-mile paddle from Lyons Bridge Road to US 411 will introduce you to this intimate little creek and cold water springs so common to this area.
This is a guided paddle trip that is free to CRBI members (There is a $10.00 per boat shuttle fee that is payable to Big Cedar Creek Park). Canoe and kayak rentals are available. Information on specific meeting times and locations will be sent to all registered participants. To register to participate and reserve your rental boats, please fill out the CRBI online registration form.
*Notes from Mike: I would appreciate your support of my annual fundraising efforts for CRBI if you plan to go on this trip. If you are not a member and want to go on this trip please join CRBI by donating $35 or more via my FirstGiving fundraising page which entitles you to a one year membership and participation in any of their scheduled trips for free.
I will also match your donation in kind if you are raising money for Paddle Georgia up to the first $100 of total donations from PG fundraisers. Just let me know when donating and I will contribute the same amount to your PG fundraising site.
Donations of any amount are appreciated and donations of $5 or more receive a raffle ticket for the chance to win a new canoe courtesy of Blue Sky Outfitter in Rome. $20 donations receive 5 tickets, $40 receive 10 tickets, $60 receive 15 tickets and $80 and above receive 20 tickets.
This will be the last posting this year which will include my annual fundraising campaign for CRBI. A heartfelt thank you to those who have supported me in this effort! There is still plenty of time to donate!
What to expect: All CRBI trips are great for beginners and you will encounter nothing over CLASS 1 river conditions on this trip. Cedar Creek is a bit more intimate than some of the other rivers that CRBI does trips on. There is some faster moving water in a few places but this adds a little fun and nothing you will encounter is over a class 1. James and Debbie at Big Cedar Creek RV Park are great folks and there is an awesome store on site with Kayaks, Canoes, and paddling accessories.
Please RSVP here to let other AAP member know you are going but you MUST register on the CRBI site to attend and secure any rental boats.
