Marty Hilbrands and Jon Crowder have put together an exceptional trip up to the Jordan River Valley about 3 hours north of Grand Rapids.
Fri June 2 - head up around 5;30pm (or whenever based on when your carpool leaves) to campground near Mancelona and “prepare” for the adventure ahead
Sat June 3 - we will Kayak about 3 hours of the Jordan River and then hike about 5 miles of the same river. This Kayak run has a few good sweepers and low hanging branches over unbelievably crystal clear cold water. Some experience and good maneuverability is required.
After kayaking this stretch of the river, one reviewer said “this is where God kayaks on his day off”. After Kayaking, we will head to Short’s brewery in Bellaire MI to share exaggerated stories and then return to the campfire to make up new ones.
Sunday there will be options of returning home in time for Keystone’s family picnic, stay for the day and do more kayaking or hiking.
Please RSVP ASAP so we can secure campsites.
You are also free to come for the day.
Cost will be your portion of the campsite, help with fuel if carpooling, and Kayak Rental if you need to rent one from Jordan River Outfitters. As of now, a single seat kayak rental cost is $45 for the day. Tandem is $55/day
We have some kayak's available to borrow but they are going fast.
