Enjoy short and leisurely after work paddle on the Great Miami River. At only 6 miles, its a good way to get on the water close to home and stretch your arms. This is a fun section that I am sure you will enjoy.
We will paddle 6 miles from the Dam near Moraine Air Park downstream of Sellars Road [GM 72] to an new take out area located near downtown Miamisburg [GM 66] on The Great Miami River. There is not a livery for boat rental or a shuttle. You will need to own your own boat and be willing to shuttle with other kayakers on this Meet Up. If you do not have a boat, local rental information is included below.
We will meet at the 6:30 PM at the launch area and agree on shuttle logistics. We will prepare boats for launch and a group will stage vehicles for shuttle at the take out location. Plan to arrive 15-20 minutes before. If you are running late, please call. I will provide my cell number once RSVP's close.
We will push of from the shoreline at 6:45 PM
We should be out of the water 8:15 PM + or -
Expect to spend about 1.5 hours on the water
We will take a leisurely paddle giving plenty of time for camera opportunities
