Vince & Brittany's First Trip Rapidan/Rappahannock

Trip Overview

This was a great 2 hour trip with light paddling, Brittany and I were able to move through the Rapidan river with little to no effort, made it great first trip down the river. This section had a couple of spots where the river speed up but nothing to be concerned about. The recovery spot Hunting Run was a little tough to find, no sign from the road, just a gravel road, (there is a sign down the gravel road a little) but you have to know where this road is - Launch was easy to spot from the water though.
