Fall Paddle Preview!

The end of summer is nigh. And though its always a bit sad to see it go, Fall is excellent season for paddling! In fact September and October are two of the prettiest months in Southeastern, NC. The humidity drops off and the days are typically warm and dry with cooler mornings and evenings. With Labor Day approaching this seemed like a good time to high light some particularly good Fall paddle locales. I'll start the series off considering the upcoming holiday weekend. If crowds are your thing you may want to skip this piece, as I'll be looking at locations for a peaceful paddling experience. Today I'll take a look at the Brunswick Nature Park as a good weekend paddle point. This county park is located off Hwy. 133 between Leland and Southport. The big draw for paddlers is the kayak platform which provides access to both Town Creek and the Brunswick River. The platform floats at tide level and allows easy put in and take out. The paddling is sheltered and quiet, with little to no motorized boat traffic. There's also ample opportunity to view wildlife. You can spot heron, osprey, wood pecker, river otter, and yes, the American Alligator. The park also features a network of trails for mountain biking, hiking, and horse back riding. So, if you have the energy and time, you could split your day between water and land activity. While the park will certainly be active this holiday weekend, it will be relatively quiet compared to the beaches and other hot spots in Southeastern, NC. More to come on Fall paddling as we get into September!
