Trip: We will take a shuttle from Down River Canoe company and will do the Hazard Mill Trip which is  approximately 3 miles. With stopping to fish frequently, our time it will be closer to 4 hours on the water.  This section of the Shenandoah is a very easy introductory trip over calm water and is a great fishing section.  Once we get to the bridge, we are at Down River Canoe and can leave our kayaks and canoes at the water and walk up to the parking lot. We won’t need a return shuttle.
