FW/SK Trip Announcement: Cataract Falls Full Moon Paddle October 3, 2020
Trip Sponsor: Wally Burchfield
Want to see the largest water falls in Indiana and paddle under the full moonlight? Here's your chance! This is a fun paddle and is open to most experience levels. Paddler must be able to paddle 8 miles round trip. These are head waters so this is a paddle rather than a float - there is no current but we will paddle at a moderate rate. The speed of motor boats is restricted so we should not have any problems with boat wake.
We will meet up at the Cunot boat ramp (Map) at 5:30PM and launch by 6:00PM. We will paddle to the falls and take a short break there. Pit bathrooms are available at the falls. Most of the return trip will be under moonlight.
You are required to have a PFD, a good light source such as headlamp or flashlight and a $5 2020 DNR non-motorized boat sticker on your boat . Boat stickers can be purchased online at http://stores.innsgifts.com/2014-state-park-permits/ or at any state park. The gate house at Lieber SRA should have them. You will pass it if you are coming from the north. Keep in mind if ordering off the website, it'll take about a week for them to ship it to you.
Please contact Wally Burchfield if you have questions.
