Moderate/Open to Public/$5 parking fee
Join the Sandhill Chapter for our monthly weekday kayak/canoe/SUP day trip on a local river or spring run.
We'll meet up at 9 am at Gores Landing County Park, unload at the ramp, then shuttle cars up to the Eureka West boat ramp. There is a $5 parking fee. Plenty of parking, no wheelies are needed at the launch sites. Restrooms are available at both parks
The total mileage is about 8 miles and the trip, including a break for lunch, will have us back at our cars around 3 pm. The paddle is all downstream and fairly easy with a couple of places to get out and stretch.
You'll have to provide your own kayak/canoe/SUP as there are no local outfitters. Bring boat, paddle, PFD with whistle, lots of water, sunscreen, insect repellent, wide-brimmed hat, lunch.
