DeSoto State Park on Lookout Mountain will host a moonlight paddle on the Little River Friday, August 16.

Park staff will be offering a guided paddle about the time the sun goes down and the moon is rising. The official time for the event is 7 to 10 p.m. Central time.

The paddle is a four-mile round trip on flatwater that is expected to take about three hours. Groups will range from two to ten participants.

Paddlers are encouraged to bring a headlamp or flashlight, insect spray, their favorite snack and some drinking water.

Participants will meet at the DeSoto Falls Picnic Area. The fee is $25 for a single kayak with tandem kayaks available on a very limited basis.

Pre-registration for the event closes on Thursday, August 15, unless it fills up earlier. Interested paddlers can reach Brittney Hughes at 256-997-5025, or via email at Brittney.Hughes@dcnr.alabama.gov for more information.
