Come spend a relaxing afternoon kayaking on the flat water at Gunpowder Falls State Park. This will be the fourth year I have done this event and it is always a lot of fun. Rent "sit on top" kayaks for one hour, two hours, or the entire day and explore the waters with the group, or venture off on your own. Prices and directions can be found on the outfitter's website. After we spend some time getting some exercise, we can head over to the Wild Duck and have some food on the water. I recommend bringing a change of clothing, sun screen, and using the facility before getting on the water since it is illegal to beach the kayak anywhere but the park.

Prices are 20$ and up for kayak rentals depending on the length of the rental.

Required Items to Bring:
