This is a beginner-level trip - usually run on the Violettes Lock - George-Washington Canal Loop.

However, since Mark Wray says he's likely to be doing this with a canoeing class
we shall be giving preference to other locations, water levels permitting.
Goose Creek, Seneca Creek, and Lower Antietam come to mind.

Please let me know in advance if you are interested. Not asking for commitment, given my inability to promise a venue, but this will allow me to inform you where the trip is going - and when.

Thanks - SYOTR, Alf

We will then shuttle as many cars to the take out at rt 7 as we can fit there (boat launch is very popular).

This is a repeat of my last year’s second highest rated kayaking event. I’ve asked the Park Authority to install a kayak launch. Unsure if this this will ever happen but we will launch from the same places we did last year. We build a human chain to move the boats and deliver travelers.

This will be about a six mile paddle which will include seeing Mount Vernon (from the wide section of the river) and exploring Little Hunting Creek.

This year, I’ll explain first we will paddle to Mount Vernon and turn around and paddle under the stone bridge under the GW Parkway. We will keep to the right as motor boats might be exiting the creek.

You have the option of paddling beyond Mount Vernon but let us know if this is your plan before we launch.

For this trip, I request that you wear a life vest. In the event of emergency this will really help us rescue you.

The wind can also create rolling waves on the open river. They are fun and don’t be worried there will be no white caps.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_Hunting_Creek

Afterwards, we can meet at the local pub for a pint and a meal, https://www.bellehavenpizzeria.com
