Abbotts Bridge to Garrard Landing

Happy Veterans Day!  Let's paddle from Abbotts Bridge to Garrard Landing!


We'll meet at 12:00 PM at Abbotts Bridge CRNA park to drop boats then drivers only will shuttle cars to Garrard Landing. The shuttlers should be back to Abbotts by 1:00 PM. Bobby and Linda will be at Abbotts at 12:00 to run the shuttle, and Glen will meet at Abbotts Bridge at 1:00 PM.


Garrard Landing is a Roswell Park and so does not require a CRNRA parking pass but vehicles at Abbots Bridge will.


This is a 10 mile paddle which is suitable for all paddlers. We will be paddling rather than floating so the trip should take 3-4 hours. Please make sure you bring plenty to drink and that you bring warm clothes (summer's gone).


We often stop for beer and snacks after paddling. All are welcome to join. Please bring dry clothes if you think you'll need them.


If you have questions or need more information please contact

    Paddle padle paddle with some fun thrown in at just the right times through the shoals! The rain was no problem as the temps were moderate and the smoke on the water is always fun to paddle through.

      We don't get that one. As a matter of fact, we got very specific instructions as to whether we could have time off for it.... Most of the examples were "no". We will miss you though!

    Howard, if Cher doesn't come along you want to share with a canoe motor? I'm also stern qualified for sure since I was 14 years old with BSA. We just need to decide before Monday morning. Email me direct if you are interested. Fun! Richard/Glen, if he can't do that can you hook us up?
