Join us on another great First Saturday Trip, on a favorite section of the Wolf with cool, clear spring fed water to cool you off when we stop. We’ll enjoy a good portion of this trip in the shade of cypress trees and other riverside flora, while paddling about 6 ½ miles. Bring water, a picnic lunch, a hat, sunscreen, and good river shoes. The channel is changing and sometimes we have to tow our canoes or kayaks, walking on sand, for about 100 yards or so in approximately ankle deep water. We hope to arrive at the take-out just below the Feemster Bridge in Moscow around 1:30 p.m.
For Those Renting Boats: You will meet the outfitter at 8:30 a.m., at the take-out, the Moscow Shopping Center. Mapquest.com this address: 13775 Hwy. 57, Moscow, TN 38057. As you cross the Wolf River Feemster Bridge at Moscow, traveling east on Hwy. 57, make the first possible left into the lot.
