This is a great trip on the nearby Harpeth River. We will paddle a beautiful 6.4-mile stretch from Kingston Springs to the Gossett Track. This trip is designed specifically for the beginner kayaker. The Harpeth River is a gentle, State Scenic River, and kayaking is a great opportunity to paddle your own boat. We will use our touring kayaks. All equipment is included in the trip fee. Estimated trip duration: 8 am – 4 pm.
Most trips are designed for a small group of people (10-12), and many of the trips require no previous experience. The fee for each trip covers the activity, transportation, in-camp food, camping fees, and group equipment. For more information, look for flyers around campus or stop by the Outdoor Recreation Center (at 2600 Children’s Way and behind the new Vanderbilt Recreation and Wellness Center) during ORC rental hours. This is also where Pre-Trip Meetings take place. Trips are open to all VU students, faculty, staff, and VRWC members. Alcohol is not permitted on any trip.
