Trek Day 1

14.8 miles, trailhead at Grand River Landing to Grand River Campsite

Paddling Environment – "Remnants"

The first day of paddling along Trek 2 begins with an eye-opening paddle through Upper Flat and the Graveyards, a 6,000 acre swamp that dramatically showcases the impacts of the Industrial Revolution on the Atchafalaya. Throughout the day's paddle, crews will meander through narrow bayous connecting small lakes which are filled with the remnants of thousands of ancient cypress trees.
