Join us for a live water river trip down the Elm Fork of the Trinity River or as we like to call her the La Santísima Trinidad, the Most Holy Trinity, via Alonso De León from about 1690. Yes it seems this lovely river has been inspiring folks in this area for quite some time!
The Safety talk starts a little after 9:am and were paddles wet at 10am sharp, miss the safety talk and you miss the river too, your safety is our top priority!
We plan on 6.8 river miles and we start and stop a lot depending on the nature of what we see, hear, and do along the trip. We have in the past encountered deer, bobcats, maybe a wolf, beaver, nutria, armadillos, Bald Eagle, osprey, many many hawks, kingfishers, great blue Herons, snowy egrets, and lot more birds too. We have seen several types of turtles, lots of water snakes, and all types of amphibians too.
Besides the critters, you will see some unique fauna and flora as well. See some of the oldest and largest trees in the greater Dallas area, some water specific plants, in great abundance, and of course, both the man made diversion channel and the historic river channel too.
We also take a short break about 2/3 of the way in and get out perhaps a short hike, stretch our legs, have a snack and if the water and air temp are good, maybe even a little dip in the river to let your inner child have some fun !!!!
You can be part of the fun too, contact Mike at 214 669 1663 or check out the signup page, group size is limited to ensure quality for all!
