Goose Creek Reservoir - Ascent to Francis Dam with Loudoun Kayakers

A joint flatwater paddle with the Loudon Kayakers & Social Meet-Up.
We'll paddle upstream to the two-foot rubble dam at the former Francis Lock and if possible forge on to Evergreen Mills. /// Please consult the "Trip Coordinator Stream Sheet" on the CCA Website, under "Trips & Events Calendar >> Trip Coordinator Sheets." /// Limited to 10 people because of the narrowness of the put-in at Sycolin Road.

WE WILL OFFER THIS TRIP AGAIN THIS FALL OR NEXT SPRING, so we recommend that if folks are flexible they come on those trips instead. Thanks.

//// PLEASE LET ME KNOW YOU'RE COMING at Looking Forward to an interesting day - if all cooperate. We suggest Rec Kayaks over Sea Kayaks, for ease of putting in and surmounting the Francis Dam. PDFs, please.
Sunday, October 24, 2021, 9:00 AM until 2:00 PM
Sycolin Road Bridge - west side of the Goose, and park off the road on right - inside - of the curve
