Interested in trying to race? The Lost River 10, is an associated race of the Lost River 50, to be held on October 23. Come out and try out the course at a leisurely pace and see if it's something you'd like to try. For those considering the 50 miler, come out and see if you think you have 40 more miles in you! The route will be from Cedar Hill Park, across Lake Charlotte to Lake Pass, through Lake Pass to the Trinity, down river to the I-10 bridge, touch the buoy and back up river to the Sulfur Cut, down the Sulfur Cut.Mack Bayou to Lake Charlotte and across to return to Cedar Hill Park. Retrying this for Saturday, hopefully with no evacuation traffic to complicate life!

Meet at 0800 at the FM 1458 bridge on the Brazos, and shuttle up to the FM 529 bridge.
8:00 AM

A pleasant and relatively short run on the Brazos above San Felipe. The distance is roughly 14.25 miles. There are no unusual hazards in this stretch, with only a couple of minor rocky areas. The put in and take out are a bit steep and generally fairly muddy, but this is, after all, the Brazos.

Large mammal fossils and petrified wood are frequent on the gravel bars, as are interesting mussels. The bottom section of the run- about six miles of it, becomes wide and slow due to the back up from the Killer Fang rapid, just below the take out.

This is a nice short run for those who have wanted to try the Brazos but don't like the 20+ mile distances on many of the stretches. Pace will be moderate and stops frequent.

Registration required.

Meet at 0730 at the FM 1462 bridge and shuttle to Memorial Park.

A roughly 28.5 mile paddle through the First Colony, Riverstone, Sienna Plantation area, ending at FM 1462, near Rosharon. There are no notable hazards on this stretch, which also passes through the Thompsons oilfield and Brazos Bend State Park.

This section of the Brazos has no real rocky or swift sections, but does have good flow. We frequently see lots of birds, large mammal fossils, and are looking for several mussel species that are proposed for listing or species of concern.

The put in is improvised, but not usually too difficult. The take out is steep, but manageable.

Meet at FM 60 to organize shuttle up to SH 21 at 0800.

More Info
Less Info
A roughly 16.30 mile paddle that includes the petrified logjam and stromatolite zone, plus numerous interesting mussels and at least a memory of rare/endangered minnow species.

The put in is moderately difficult. The take out is just plain hard. The in between parts make it all worthwhile. One of the more interesting parts of the lower river. There are a couple of rocky areas, but no boat busters or highly technical water. Trip limited to first six sign ups.
