Grayson lake is a cliff-lined reservoir that is absolutely beautiful.  Considered by some as the most aesthetically pleasing paddle within 75 miles of this area.  This is approximately a 7 mile loop canoe or kayak trip on flat water. The park does not have kayaks, although paddlers have the option to bring their own kayak for the trip. We will meet at Carter Caves State Parks Welcome Center and take about a 40 minute commute to the launch area.  From there we will be on the water for about 4-5 hours.  We will find a nice rock outcrop and stretch our legs and take a lunch break. 

Canoes, paddles and life vests will be provided along with transportation to and from the put in and a guide or two to top it all off.  If you plan to bring your own kayak please make this known when registering for the trip.  This trip can be canceled due to extreme weather conditions.  Equipment suggestions include sunscreen, hat, camera, lunch, water, and a dry bag to put your equipment in.

The cost is $35 per person.  The trip will meet at the Carter Caves State Parks Welcome Center at 9:00am.  Limited space is available and you must call the park at 1-800-325-0059 to pre-register.
