Paddle a natural Texas river with limited development. It will be the early start of spring so who knows what we'll see.

 

 

A cart to transport your kayak to the river's edge is highly desirable. I hope to have enough to share. Don't buy one just for this trip. Due to ruts on the paths from the base of the Hwy 105 bridge, I would not suggest trying to get closer without 4-wheel drive.

 

This should be an moderately easy paddle with a rest and/or lunch stop, depending on timing, so bring a lunch and hydration. It is 26 miles with some steady current. I ask that we get a good early start. We did this paddle Exactly 6 years ago and it took our at dusk. Gauge Data for Liberty, TX:

Be prepared, as always, for rain, insects, and possible immersion if you should get unlucky or ecstatic. Have a set of warm dry clothes in your boat. There could be a few pulls over shallow spots. Some basic camping gear would be good insurance.

Let's meet at 8:00 and launch before 9. Driving directions to the put-in:
Locate your favorite directions to Moss Hill, TX (60 miles from downtown Houston), take Hwy 105 West for 4 miles, cross the river and turn left to drive to the river's edge where we will meet.  You can also get to it by driving North on US-59 toward Cleveland, TX and driving East on Hwy 105
 
A good shuttle plan will speed things up, so be innovative and flexible to reduce time on the highway. Due to the virus, carpooling shall only occur with occupants wearing masks and windows down for maximum air exchange. We do need volunteers to carry multiple paddlers and kayaks back and forth. I will have my trailer for 3. Be kind.

The Take-out is in Liberty, TX, also on the West side of the river. It's a steep boat ramp.  As always, do not leave anything valuable in vehicles at either location.
