Cost: $69/$76

If the spring showers bring us enough rain, then we’re off to paddle the beautiful waters of Clear Creek. This is a fantastic destination for beginner paddlers looking for something a bit more challenging than the Hiwassee. The consistent elevation drop and exciting turns through the boulders make for an exhilarating day on the river.  Experience is necessary and a solid roll is a must.  This trip is limited to the first 6 people who sign up. Estimated trip duration: 7 am – 10 pm.

Note:  There will be one special and two normal pool sessions available to participants of this trip to work with kayak instructors on your roll prior to the trip.  Participation in at least one of these sessions is mandatory, two is preferred:  Tuesdays Mar. 13 or 20 or Wednesday Mar. 21 from 7– 9 pm.
