Women’s Paddling Group: Pile Driver Slough

This is a very nice little crystal clear river. The water has come up about 6 inches so we will not have to get out of our boats much if at all. This is an easy float but there are opportunities for practicing your river reading skills and river running maneuvers.We will meet at the REI parking lot at 9:00 am and carpool as many folks as possible in my car. Between the trailer and Mary’s truck we can carry a number of boats. The float is limited to 10 participants and the cost is $15.00. Bring your boat, pfd, lunch and drinking water.

All Alaska Canoe School floats are alcohol and drug free and participants are required to wear a pfd on shore and on the water.
