Sea Kayak - Eld Inlet

We’ll be Launching from Frye County Park we’ll make our way down to HWY 101 with lunch at Buzz’s Bar And Grill and some exploring of the estuary south of the highway before heading back north.

  • Sea Kayak III
  • Casual
  • Mileage: 14.0 nm
  • Pace: 3

We will meet at Frye Park County Park at 10 AM. With a short huddle at the beach. It’s really nice actually at 11 o’clock with launch at 11:15. 
It’s about 1000 feet down to the water from the parking lot area.  It’s a very steep hill but it’s all paved trail, so bring your wheels that’s why the extra time to get everything down to the beach from the parking area and the restrooms are very nice here and the gate opens at 9 AM every day.  So be sure to get there early if you need an extra bit of time to get your stuff down to the beach.
