As we are not familiar with the area, I will say that as you face the river from the edge of the river, we paddled to our left, toward the golf course. If you like watching birds, this is a great place. We saw lots of kingfishers, osprey, hawk, and many others. We even saw one hawk fly across the river with a snake and then stop in a tree to devour its meal.
The paddle was constant, but not difficult until we were ready to go around the end of the island (we went to the left first) where people were golfing. It took a bit of work to get around the bend, but it's do-able, even for beginners, if you don't get too close to the edge of the island. Our reward came on the other side of the golf course's island when we happened upon a small little island with four heron nests, and herons sitting in each one.
The paddle back to our beginning was a very lazy one, letting the river do most of the work. All in all, a very nice 2 and 1/2 hour paddle. The only negative thing I can say is that it would have been nice to have GPS coordinates for the take-out landing...
