backwoods kayaking

Thursday, October 10, 2013
I'm not an outdoorsy girl at all, but fall weather makes me crave the great outdoors. The changing leaves and invigorating scent of crisp autumn air might have something to do with this uncharacteristic desire!

While you may not see me camping in a tent, on the ground, next to bugs... one outdoor activity I do love is kayaking! Backwoods Kayak & Canoe, located next to the Tarrant County College Trinity River campus, rents canoes and kayaks on an hourly basis. If you're not ready to take the plunge and invest in expensive equipment, a rental will cost you between $10-25 per hour (and trust me, if you're a beginner, an hour is all you need.)

You can choose from the south-bound route toward Lancaster Avenue or go north and curve to the west along White Settlement. It's a great way to spend some time soaking in the gorgeous North Texas fall weather. Besides enjoying the weather and scenery, kayaking is a great bonding activity for you and your significant other--it takes some patience and team work, but it's an absolute blast!

Where: 480 North Taylor Street, Fort Worth 76102
Hours: Friday-Sunday, 9 a.m. - 7 p.m.
Wear: Water resistant attire--water mocassins, board shorts, swim suit, etc. Bring a change of clothes and a towel because you will most likely get wet!

Me kayaking this summer. I just love the view of the Fort Worth skyline!

Have you ever been kayaking (or canoeing)?
