Annual Paddle to the Dam 2022
Annual Paddle to the Dam at Saguaro Lake
What to expect on our paddle
Our annual paddle to the dam at Canyon Lake has been a ritual for us to celebrate “the shop is closed on Sundays for winter”. So what do we do? We go paddle!!!!
Except this year we are moving the event to Saguaro!!!
This is one of our favorite paddles all year! It’s incredibly beautiful, the temps are still warm and the water is not too cold yet.
If you choose to join us, bring your own gear and enough sustenance to get you through 16-miles of paddling (board, kayak, paddle, leash, PFD, water, electrolytes, healthy and hearty snacks)
When and Where
We plan to meet at Butcher Jones Recreation Site at 9ish and then launch around 9:30 AM. We are typically back in 5.5 to 6.5 hours. It’s approximately 2.5 hours up and 3.0 hours back, and we make a few break stops along the way. We will find a place to stop near the top to hang out and eat lunch before heading back.
Don’t forget your Tonto pass for your car.
