Buford Dam – Abbotts Bridge (14 miles)
This is an easy 14 mile, 5 – 6 hour including the lunch, paddle. We'll meet at 8:15 for breakfast then go paddle. If you don't want to join us for breakfast you can meet at Buford Dam at 9:00.
You are going to get wet at Rescue Rock so spray skirts are recommended. Between Buford Dam and the Hwy 20 Bridge PFDs are required to be worn and that's the law! This is a fun trip for learning how to paddle a kayak around or sometimes over river rocks.
Bring a lunch and plenty to drink (no glass allowed on the river). We'll takes breaks when needed and stop for lunch at the famous "Beanee Weenee Rock". This is also a great social time to laugh and talk about the trip, what happened or almost happened, who got splashed or who went swimming.
Make sure you are ready to spend time in the sun with hat, sunglasses on lanyard, sunscreen or protective clothing.
We'll meet at 9:00 AM at Buford Dam to drop boats then drivers only will shuttle cars to Abbotts Bridge. Abbotts Bridge is a CRNRA park so be sure to bring your CRNRA parking pass or $3.00 for parking.
