Come join Campus Recreation and Outdoor Adventures as we Canoe and Kayak the Perdido River on Saturday, February 2. This is as easy float trip with no rapids and will be fun for both beginners and advanced paddlers. The Perdido River demarcates the state line between Alabama and Florida. We will begin our trip at Barrineau Park and then be taken by a semi-swift current for 4 miles along remote pine and oak wooded areas. We’ll see lots of NO TRESPASSING signs and private hunting camps and small bayous, bogs, and feeder streams that can be navigated for short distances and provide an environment much different from that of the river. We will pack lunch and eat on the river.
Leave Campus Rec at 8:00 a.m. Drive one hour to Barrieneau Park, “set sail” around 10 a.m., paddle for about four hours. Return to the Student Recreation Center around 5:00 p.m.
