Looking for Potomac River Paddle Partner
Posted by: jarohrlick on Jul-16-14 6:19 PM (EST)
I am looking to go paddling on the Potomac river near Rockville, MD. There is a launch called Seneca Creek Landing. It looks like it will provide access to the Potomac.
Has anyone launched there before? I think it looks like a nice easy paddling. I am looking to paddle for an hour or two at most.
Just to be clear, I have a sea kayak, not a white water kayak.

It's better known as Riley's Lock and is an easy launch point. The parking lot can get a bit crowded. Not far away is Violet's Lock, which requires carrying a little further but also works.

I started my paddling career in about 1961 paddling up the C&O Canal to Violet's Lock and then paddling the river back to the boat rental on the Virginia side.
