Paddle the Canal is a unique urban kayaking event in which kayakers traverse down the canal in Big Spring Park, located in downtown Huntsville, Alabama. The inaugural event occurred in April 2017, and it returned in April 2018.
There are timed trials in the morning followed by a freeform “general paddle” in the afternoon. Kayaks can be rented from the North Alabama Canoe and Kayak Club (NACK) on site for $5.
The event is held in April and is hosted by Downtown Huntsville Inc. and is sponsored by Redstone Federal Credit Union (RFCU). RFCU members can enjoy free access to the “general paddle” session, one of the many perks of joining RFCU.
