Paddling section: You can bring your own kayak, canoe or even paddleboard. They have canoes for rent $20, but its 1st come, 1st serve. Our hike starts at 8:30am, so if you need to rent a canoe, please arrive 8/8:15 to rent and then you will be able to pick it up after the hike. 

The hike will be first, so you can choose to not paddle. Post in the comments section to find canoe partners.
