Canoe/Kayak the Cannon River

Not interested in biking the morning of August 3rd, but still want to get out and do something. How about canoe or kayak the Cannon River?

 

This will be a leisurely[masked] hours paddle from Cannon Falls to Miesville Ravine Park, with a return shuttle included in the cost.

 

Cost: $35 per canoe or $25 per kayak, which includes life jackets and paddles. If you have your own canoe/kayak and just want shuttle service there is a cost of $20 per unit for that. If we get more than 25 people we can get a small discount.

 

We can meet in the first parking lot as you enter Lake Byllesby Regional Park, and carpool over to the canoe rental. We'll leave the parks parking lot a little bit before 9am, as it's a very short distance away. If running late here is my number[masked] or just meet us at the canoe rental.

 

The web site has obviously more info and good directions on how to get to the put in spot or if you're running late. http://www.cannonfallscanoeandbike.com/Canoe_Kayak.php

    This was perfect! I wanted to continue on and didn't want to stop. Wished I had my own kayak so I could've gone down to Welch with those who did their own shuttle and had their own kayaks. Have to for sure do this one again.

      Timm and I biked the Cannon River bike path from Welch to Red Wing and back today. It was a great bike ride. In the winter there is cross country skiing on that bike path. It is groomed.

  • Sue

    FYI we probably won't all get on the water at 9am and it'll probably be closer to 9:30am by the time we are all ready.

    July 31, 2013

  • Sue

    If I read this correct I need to make sure there are 3 kayaks rented and the rest are canoes. Kathy V, Linda and myself are the ones renting kayaks. If I have to add to that number please let me know so I can let the rental place know. I also just posted info on the Saturday night meal if anyone is interested in staying for that. Just go to the event page. Sorry, but I forgot to copy the link, otherwise I'd have posted it.

  • Paul B.

    Anyone that has there own kayak can use the shuttle service provided by Cannon Falls Canoe and Bike Rental. The cost is $20.00. I would like to save myself the $20 and set up a shuttle. A little planning a coordination and one other person that is bring there own kayak is all I need. Let me know if you want to be apart of the shuttle.

    1 · July 28, 2013

    • Grady

      I would also be interested if we can come up with a plan. There would be two of us with two kayaks.

      July 28, 2013

    • Tim U

      July 30, 2013

  • Grady

    If we have our own kayak Is the "put in" point still at CF kayak rental and can we park in their lot?

    FREE SHUTTLE PLAN:

    More than one other person wants to use there own boats. If you want to paddle with the group that rent boats and paddles at 9:00 AM we need to be at the put in at 8:00 am to unload kayaks & gear, Leave some one to watch the boats. Take all the cars down to the take out, pile into as few cars as possible and drive back by 9:00 AM to meet the renters. It is a bit of a push. and if your late it may not work for you. I will be there.

    We can take all that want to be a part of the free shuttle plan. Be there at 8:00 AM sharp.

    I have done this many times with other paddle groups.

    Send me an email if you want the free shuttle. I'll look for you

    This would be my first time doing something with the group. I would love to have a partner for the canoe. I use to canoe when I was young. (Bible camp) so not totally new at it. I'm from the Hudson Wi area. Do we pay that day or send you a check Sue?

    July 26, 2013
