Please join TCWP and Advocates for the Oak Ridge Reservation on Saturday, July 20, for the third in a series of scenic paddle trips in the Three (Four) Bends “Blueway” along Melton Hill Lake. We’ll meet at 9 a.m. at the boat launch area at Clark Center Park, and launch to paddle downstream on Melton Hill Lake along the shore of Gallaher Bend in the scenic Three Bends Area. We’ll stop by to view Bull Bluff, a sand island, and will also enjoy several other quiet and scenic undeveloped inlets, probable wildlife sightings and much greenery. The trip will conclude back at the Clark Center Park boat launch area. Participants can bring their own canoes or kayaks, or TCWP is arranging to rent several canoes from River Sports for those who need one. Rental cost will be $25 per person with two per canoe. The number of available rental canoes (which come with paddles and life jackets) will be limited, so please register early for a spot. The trip is an easy paddle, and will take about two to three hours at a leisurely pace. Bring a lunch and water; sunscreen and a hat are recommended. Personal flotation devices (life jackets) must be worn, and all participants must sign a TCWP sign-in sheet.
Please pre-register with Sandra Goss at (865) 805-1470 or at sandra@sandragoss.com.
We are also planning canoe trips around Haw Ridge at a later date.
