Pop Up Paddle
Join us JULY 11 for a POP UP PADDLE and explore the Gainesville Upper Lanier Water Trail!
What is a Pop Up Paddle?
It is an event where we set up at various locations and explore the Gainesville Upper Lanier Water Trail. This 14 mile stretch of waterway trail has 5 drop in and drop off locations, so don’t worry, you don’t have to do all 14 at once!
During the Pop Up Paddle event there will be rentals available for kayaks and paddleboards OR you can bring your own and enjoy as other kayakers navigate that stretch of the trail.
On July 11 from 9am-2pm there will be rental stations at BOTH Longwood Park and Lake Lanier Olympic Park where you can either bring your own gear OR rent from the Lanier Canoe and Kayak Club!
All skill levels welcomed and there will be expert kayakers on site if you need any assistance.
At the Lake Lanier Olympic Park location only, you can pre-register online to rent an actual dragon boat! It will come with an expert steersman and you will be guaranteed some great fun!
