May 2015 – Time To Think About Your Kayak Trip Down The Greenbelt Corridor

greenbelt kayak shuttle service denton #kayaking Ray Roberts Lewisville Texas

Kayaking conditions along the Elm Fork of the Trinity River from Lake Ray Roberts to Lewisville Lake are definitely better than they have been in years.

A contact today made me think in terms of “rating” the float from point-to-point, and here’s what I came up with:

The run from the Dam at Ray Roberts to HWY 428 Greenbelt Park starts off slow but as water rises (mostly from backflow from Lewisville) the going gets better than it has been in quite some time. As far as downstream currents go, it’s not a free ride. I would rate this stretch at about a 2.5 out of 5.

The run from the HWY 428 Greenbelt Park to HWY 380 Park has a good deal of water, and a good deal of it comes from an extraordinarily full Lewisville Lake. It has so much water, in fact, the park at 380 is closed. I would rate this stretch of the Trinity at 3.75 out of 5.

Look for business cards around Denton, or fill out a contact form today! I am trying to spread the word, as conditions are definitely better than they have been in years.
