Paddle Camping on the French Broad Paddle Trail
Apr 16 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
The Wedge at Foundation

Have you ever wanted to do a paddle overnighter? Do you want to get a taste of a river expedition? Learn the secrets behind using the FB Paddle Trail.

Here’s a sneak peak:
Secret #1: Your canoe or kayak is doing most of the heavy lifting. So, bring whatever you want! You’re not backpacking, so if you want your dog to have a costume box and it fits in your boat, bring it.

Secret #2: You can eat SOOOO well when you paddle camp. Bring your camp stove or a dutch oven to create your favorite meal with a sweet view.

Headwaters Outfitters, the French Broad Riverkeeper, and MountainTrue are hosting another session on how to use the FB Paddle Trail. Whether you’re looking to do one night or 14, we’ll tell you how. Get all your questions answered – from what gear to bring, to how to reserve campsites, and where to stock up on beer. There will even be a raffle to win a free camping weekend.

2nd Annual Broad River Race
Apr 25 @ 1:45 pm – 5:00 pm
Lake Houser

We welcome folks to race at their own pace and enjoy 5 miles on the most beautiful stretch of the Broad River. Remember, the hare may not outrun the tortoise!

This race only has two rules:
– You MUST wear a pfd.
– No motors allowed

Otherwise, you can paddle solo, tandem, or with as many people as will fit in your boat. We will meet at the Lake Houser put-in at 1:45 sharp to drop off boats. From there, we will take vehicles to the Broad River Greenway and get a shuttle back to the put in. (If you don’t have a Greenway sticker, you may have a $5 parking fee). Betsy the Turtle drops and the race begins at 3:00pm.  And we’re off to paddle or just float at your own pace. First person, or first team, across the finish line wins a MountainTrue gift bag and takes possession of the Turtle until next year’s race.

Sign up and get directions here.
