TSRA Harpeth River Trip December 16th, 2023_Harpeth River State Park_ Section 2 of 5

For five 3rd Saturday paddles we are paddling the full length of the Harpeth River State Park, 40 miles total, in 5 sections, starting October through February. Come paddle as many sections as you would like. I will post which section and itinerary each month.

This will be winter paddling, so preparation and proper gear are essential. Give me a call if you are new to cold weather paddling and need to discuss preparation and gear. These trips will all be weather dependent. If conditions are too harsh, we will reschedule as needed.
