Guided Canoe Trip: Cahaba Lily Tour I–Cancelled due to high water levels

May 8 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm UTC-6
Cahaba National Widlife Refuge, River Trace
West Blocton, AL 35184 United States
+ Google Map
$40

On this tour, you will see the beautiful Cahaba lilies first hand in their natural setting. These are rigorous outings that require wading and dragging a canoe over shallow rocky shoals. When very low water conditions occur, we alter the trip so we still see the lilies and enjoy the river, but we avoid a difficult hike down the riverbed. These are our most popular outings, so call soon to reserve your canoe.
