G.T. Humanist Paddle Trip: Manistee River

July 20 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

Join the Grand Traverse Humanists for a paddle trip down the mighty Manistee River! Experienced river guide Linnaea will lead you down this section of river that is appropriate for beginners. This is a beautiful section of river, with majestic scenery on both sides. We will pass below the North Country National Scenic Trail. There is little development along the banks and the views of the hills surrounding the river should be truly spectacular.
We’ll meet at the Manistee River Roadside Park off of US 131 (GPS coordinates 44.489006, -85.404125) at 11 AM, set up our shuttle, and paddle down to Baxter Bridge (29 1/2 Rd., GPS coordinates 44.4929338, -85.528095).
Please bring your boat, paddle, sunscreen, snacks and water, and sturdy river shoes, as well as a change of clothes to leave in your car.
If we feel like it, we might get dinner afterwards, perhaps at Kingsley Local Brewing/A. Papano’s Pizza.
Important!: RSVP to Linnaea at lmelcarek@gmail.com to attend. Rain date will be the following Saturday, July 27.
