Enjoy this peaceful river trip from Riverbend Park canoe/kayaking launch to the Lainhart Dam and back….
What to expect:
The paddling from the riverbend canoe/kayaking launch to the Dam is easy, and relaxing. This part of the river is shaded by colored meanders through centuries-old cypress trees and crystal clear waters. If you are a nature photography lover, you will find plenty of opportunities to use your camera while cruising the river. As you get closer to the Dam…you will experience a much faster water stream. BE AWARE that on the way back you will have to paddle against the current to head back to the canoe launch.
This paddle adventure is approximately 2.5 mile round trip, but if you paddle a little farther downstream to the overpass for a U-turn, you will find yourself in a almost pre-historic, untouched site, worth a try, a 3.5 mile round trip.
