You’re invited to the Dan River Basin Association’s (DRBA’s) August 1 First Saturday Outing on the Smith River. Launching at Mitchell Bridge Access, paddlers will float 7.5 miles, taking out on private property close to Morgan Ford Bridge near Sandy Level, Virginia, with the owner’s permission.

This section of the river is rated as Class I, suitable for novice paddlers. Along the way, participants will collect litter from the river as part of the great Smith River Cleanup. Other portions of the Smith will be cleaned up in the summer and fall for a total of some fifty river miles.

Meeting at 10:00 a.m. at Mitchell Bridge Access on Mitchell Road (VA 636) (GPS 36.60264, -79.77658), participants will unload boats and gear, sign waivers, and set the shuttle. Three Rivers Outfitters of Eden, 336-627-6215 or www.3-R-O.com, will offer boat rentals and shuttle for the outing. Paddlers are urged to choose canoes instead of kayaks, since more trash can be loaded into canoes.

Outings and meetings of the Dan River Basin Association are open to the public without charge.
