Laid Back Saturday Social Paddle from Greenbridge Recreation Area on Triadelphia Reservoir
This is a perfect paddle for newer paddlers who would like to rent a kayak.
There are spots reserved on the attending list for members who rent kayaks and for those who have paid the voluntary annual dues. They will receive preferential treatment on the wait list.
Triadelphia Reservoir is owned by the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC). To paddle here you must purchase a $6.00 day use permit or a $70.00 season permit. You can buy the permit online at http://www.wsscwater.com but expect the process to take about 10 minutes if it is your first time purchasing a permit online.
We'll be on the water promptly at 3:30 PM from the boat ramp at the Greenbridge Recreation Area of Triadelphia Reservoir. Please plan to arrive with plenty of time to have your boat and gear ready to launch by then. We do not wait for late arrivals.
This should be about a 6 to 7 mile paddle at a gentle pace heading upstream. Even newer paddlers should be able to do this one as long as you can handle paddling for a little over an hour each way with a rest stop in the middle. We will stop off the water for a rest/snack break somewhere around the midpoint in the paddle so bring something to eat and perhaps something to share while they socialize with the rest of the group. I expect we will be back to the takeout somewhere between 6:00 and 6:30 PM.
Rental kayaks including a paddle and PFD are available for this paddle for $40.00 ($35.00 for those who have paid the voluntary dues). To reserve one you must answer the rental question when you RSVP.
