Thornapple River - Kayak Trip / Canoe Trip

Report Type: Day Trip Report
Trip Dates: May 16, 2010
Nearest City: Grand Rapids, MI
Difficulty: Easy

Description:

We put in at the park at 68th St in Alaska and paddled down to Cascade, Leslie Tassell Park. My son and I were in the Loon 15t and my wife and 3-year old daughter were in the new 12' Vapor.

We had current for the first mile or so then it was nothing. A bit breezy and a lot of paddling. The trip took 2 hours and a lot of work. I see that there are a lot of boats in slips along the way so this is no place for kayaking during the warm months at peak times; definitely a early morning trip. Airport traffic, highway bridges. Lots of houses, good experience. Easy in and out and back home in no time. Might do it again out of bordem.

Accommodations:

Grand Rapids, Kentwood, has it all.

Fees:

No

Directions:

M-37 south of Grand Rapids, East on 68th st. 3 mi. to Alaska.
