Participants are responsible for providing their own transportation, kayak, paddle, PFD, sunscreen and water.
The launch site is 26 miles from the intersection of South Airport and Garfield. Directions:
From Kingsley- take 113 east. Just after it curves south turn left on 186 toward Fife Lake. Cross 131 and drive through the village of Fife Lake. Continue on the main drag (State Street) as it curves to the right and follows the lakeshore. It turns into Coster Road outside of Fife Lake. Continue on Coster to the launch site. , which is visible on the left after crossing the bridge. (The launch site is about 5 miles from Fife Lake).
Directions to landing site: Go back on Coster Road to Lund Road, turn left and then again left on Shippey Road. Follow Shippey until the intersection of Bousschey/Lucas Road, turn the only direction it goes which is to the left. (There will be a large brown metal building visible ahead on the right). Follow Bousschey/Lucas through some curves until the road dips down into the river valley and a bridge comes in view.
