Description: Let’s meet at the Up the Creek Rentals parking lot at 9:30 am on Sunday October 6, 2013 to kayak or bike or hike or any combination. The goal is to start the activities at 10 am. The rental shop will give our group a 10% discount with more than 5 kayak renters. The rental fee to kayak on Mattawoman Creek right outside the shop is $25 for two hours. One end of the flat, paved, wide, scenic Indian Head Rail Trail is a couple blocks from the rental shop. So you may want to bike or hike instead of kayaking or split up time for different activities. The rails trail has shade and beautiful natural surroundings. Herons, egrets, eagles, hawks, osprey, beavers, otters, turtles, deer, and foxes are often spotted not far off the trail. . Please contact the trip leader or other attendees you know about possible carpooling. Please contact the leader or assistant if you are attending.
