Lifelong Adventure: Black River Paddle Trip – SOLD OUT

  • Wednesday, April 01, 2020
  • 7:00am - 7:00pm

Paddle the beautiful Black River through the largest concentration of ancient (1000+ years old) bald cypress trees known, including one that is over 2600 years old — the fifth oldest documented tree in the world. It’s a long paddle at 10+ miles on a relatively slow-moving black water river requiring good general physical abilities and moderate paddling experience.
