Trip Difficulty: Easy/Moderate. Depending on recent rainfall, the river may be moving fast and good boat handling skills may be needed from time to time. Logjams and strainers can be expected.
We will return to East Fork White River for this trip. This time we will paddle from Azalia to Seymour. The put in site is just a few miles south of Columbus. Here is the Google Maps link for the route from Indy to the put-in and take-out sites: https://goo.gl/maps/P8WufN2PTv82. This paddling route will be 12 miles in length and last approximately four to five hours. We’ll meet at the put-in site at 11am and then shuttle vehicles to the take-out site. We should be on the water by noon. Bring something to eat and we will stop along the river for lunch.
Suggested items to bring: Wide brimmed hat, sun block, hand sanitizer, sunglasses, large sponge, bilge pump or container to bail out water, water, snacks, weather radio, towel, change of clothes, water shoes, paddling gloves, rain gear, bug spray, safety whistle, drybags, sprayskirt, Ziplock bags, camera, binoculars, rope, headlamp or flashlight, a sense of adventure, and a good dose of humor. For clothing try to use something other than cotton, especially if the weather is cool. Polypropylene or polyester are good choices since neither holds water and they wick moisture away from you.
