We will paddle under the Front Street bridge, then under the 55 bridge, to the tunnels leading to Scott’s Creek.  We will paddle through either of the 3 long, slightly scary tunnels that lead to a very pretty little Scott’s Creek.  After a couple miles exploring the creek we will turn around and come back through the long, still slightly scary tunnels and return to Lawson Creek Park.  If you have never experienced the tunnels this is your chance!

PFD IS REQUIRED.   Bring snacks, hat, water, and a headlight if you desire.  Weather calls for clear skies, mid 60s with 5-8 mph winds.
