Rainbow Springs

Trip Overview

Set out from KP Hole Park and headed North, upstream. Winds 16mph but not seemingly so. Finished first half of trip at Rainbow Springs Park. Coasted back downstream to KP Hole Park. Several turtles, ducks, egrets, and fish sightings. Watched as an otter cut across my heading, chasing after a snake that was 8” out of water to observe the otter. Cost was $7.00 for a park day pass and parking.

Gear Notes

Nothing special needed for this quick glide. I packed a dry bag and thermos.


Gorgeous weather, including the quick shower before shoving off. 92 degrees!
