Russian River Deep Paddle
Join TrekSonoma on a three day adventure as we paddle the Russian River from Forestville to the Ocean. Our journey will begin in the redwoods, meander through stunning riparian forests teaming with birds, and end with the harbor seals in the Jenner estuary. Each evening we will camp near the river, eat local foods, and join in merriment around a campfire. LandPaths will provide gear transport, a shuttle from Jenner back to Forestville, a naturalist's perspective on the river, and tasty meals beginning with dinner on Saturday. Guest speakers, live music, and good friends will enhance this already beautiful stretch of River.
You are welcome to bring your own boat. TrekSonoma has a limited number of boats to lend. The cost to rent a boat will be $40 for the entire Trek, for a total of $590. Please let us know if you will need to rent a boat, and be prepared to pay for it upon registration. Thank you!
A packing list and precise meeting location will be sent to participants at a later date.
Length of Trip: 3 Days, approximately 20 miles.
River Conditions and Difficulty: The Russian River at this time of year will be meandering and moving slowly, making it an excellent time to paddle for all skill levels. Beginners are welcome. However, the ability to paddle a kayak all day is important.
