I'm looking for a place to get my 11 yr old son in his 8' Pelican on some moving water, but kid friendly and SAFE. He just earned his kayaking merit badge this summer, so we're looking for something other than a lake.
Is it legal to kayak down that creek in that goes by Peanut Farm and Rocketship Park?
I see people in that H2O all the time.
Good for you; I started my son on Portage Creek, worked great, just make sure you have the right gear. My son is 13 started kayaking at 8 learning rolls and strokes in the pool. Just yesterday, we took packrafts and hiked up Granite Creek by Sutton, and ran the bottom section of class II-III water. What a great sport, my whole family kayaks, and we/they love the adventure, the possibilities are almost endless.
