Mountain Run Lake Kayak Tour
Join FOR River Steward October Greenfield for a guided paddle tour of Mountain Run Lake. This morning float begins and ends at the public boat ramp. This trip is flat water only. Minimum age is 12 years and some paddling experience is helpful.
Mountain Run Lake is a 75-acre water supply reservoir located just 15 minutes from downtown Culpeper. The channel catfish and brown bullhead populations are some of the best found in small impoundments in Northern Virginia. Wildlife is abundant and can be readily seen throughout the year. On this trip we will learn about water quality, drinking water, and the natural ecology and wildlife of the area.
Meet at the public boat ramp at 9:45 a.m. to check-in. Mountain Run is located just above Pelham Reservoir. Take Route 29 south from Culpeper, turn right on Route 718 to the lake. We’ll launch from the boat ramp and expect to return by noon.
Your ticket purchase includes kayak, paddle, and life jacket. Attendees bring snacks, sunscreen, water bottle, insect repellent, and wear a hat.
