Brittany & Vince's 2nd Trip - Rappahannock

Trip Overview

This trip was our 2nd section on our trip down the Rappahannock river, Today we put in at Hunting Run and kayaked down to Motts Run, the trip took us about 3hrs 45 mins, with light paddling. There was about a dozen or so small rapid areas which made the trip a good adventure. My daughter and I are beginner kayakers and had little to no issues making this run and had a lot of fun. Need to scout out the Motts run launch - a little tough to see from the water, would hate to miss your exit spot.
