The Tapteal water trail officially opens tomorrow Saturday May 3rd 2014.
The Tapteal Greenway is planning a group float starting at Chamna Nature Preserve and taking out at Wye park near Bateman Island. Volunteers will be available to shuttle you back up to your car at Chamna so that makes logistics a bit easier than normal. The group plans to leave Chamna at 10am but asks that you arrive by 9:30 am to get everyone ready.
Kayak rentals will be available at Chamna but you must reserve one in advance via their facebook page. (link located below) Greenies will have kayaks and paddle boards available to demo at Wye park as well. If you've wondered if kayaking is your style, tomorrow would be an excellent day to try it out before you buy.
Tapteal Greenway asks that no inflatables come along, looks like they are hoping for only paddle powered kayaks and canoes.
My family and I have floated the river many times and it's a great way to relax and see some wildlife up close.
