Dawn Patrol On The Upper Rogue

Meetup at 5:30, cars spotted to the Rockford dam at 5:40, paddles wet by 6:00. This will be about 4 hours of mother nature at her finest, first thing in the morning. Then join me for an after paddle breakfast at Peppermill Grill. Or a stroll through the Farmers Market.

Being silent will come naturally at this time of the morning, but if you get lost, speak up.

Sunrise is 6:10AM on July 5th.

    You are all very welcome. It's people like all of you that make it so much fun to host such paddles. I look forward to every paddle to see old friends and new members. So until we meet again, paddle safe and enjoy what mother nature has to offer us. Thank you all.

    Serenely moving and beautiful. It was definitely worth getting up early for. The organization of this group is amazing. They said cars would be spotted to Rockford at 5:40...and it was exactly 5:40! Thank you for hosting this event, it was just wonderful!

    Nothing like the quiet of a dawn paddle, with the mist rising from the water and the birds singing with the first morning light. Thanks Kim and Susan for hosting this.

    Had a great day on the Kalamazoo yesterday and saw a spectacular fireworks display last night. So, 5:30 a.m. came around too fast.

    Your map shows 13 Mile Rd but your address says 11 Mile Rd. If you meant 11 Mile Rd. , could I take 10 Mile Rd. to Jewell then Jewell to 11 Mile Rd ? Please confirm address area, not sure if I can make it yet.

      Theresa: Please see "More detailed directions" above...

    MORE DETAILED DIRECTIONS TO JEWEL & 11 MILE
    Take 131 to the Rockford exit (10 Mile Rd) and go west on 10 Mile Rd 0.7 miles to Jewell Rd. Turn right (north) on Jewell Rd, and go 0.7 miles to 11 Mile Rd (which comes in only on the left. If you go to where Jewell turns to the right you’ve gone too far). Turn left (west) on 11 Mile Rd and go 0.2 miles to a small two track road on the right. If you reach the bridge over the river you’ve gone too far.
