This is an unknown (to most folks) section of the San Jacinto
River that is scenic and mostly peaceful.

I must limit the attendance of this paddle due to the fact that I
must apply for non-resident parking passes for each car.
Contact me with any questions about parking.
Carpooling is a good idea.

Trip Description: 

We will meet at 09:30, ready to launch by 10:00, at the boat ramp in River Grove Park.
There are restroom facilities at the entrance to the park.
The park loop is one way. We will paddle for about 7 miles,
exploring The back waters of the San Jacinto River.
There are some opportunities for "primitive" Bio breaks
along the way.

Directions: Take Hwy59/ IH69 N to Kingwood Dr.  Go East into
Kingwood Dr. for 5 miles to Woodland Hills Drive. Turn right
(South) and proceed to the end of Woodland Hills to River Grove
Park (2 miles). Park in any available spaces in the park. If you
are pulling a trailer, you may use the Boat trailer spaces.


May include motor boat traffic, jet ski traffic, water snakes, submerged tree stumps, hanging limbs and branches, insects, wasps and angry boat owners (if the boat ramp is blocked). Please do not block the boat ramp!
Bring plenty of drinking water to maintain hydration throughout the paddle.  Please dress/pack accordingly. The weather may be cool.  Please don't wear cotton. Bring an extra set of dry clothes.
