Trip 2 Sr. 589 to US Hwy 49
The numerous large sandbars in the first five miles are replaced with high soapstone banks and some bluffs as the trip progresses. There is one fun place with a 2-3 ft. drop towards the end. A “tricky” put in and a couple logjams make this a good trip for the adventurous paddler.

Lots of twists and turns - riffles and fast places make for an interesting trip. Cool, clear tributaries and springs provide relief on hot summer days. Large white sandbars appear in the last half of trip just in time to take a rest.

Trip 2 Hwy 49-City Bridge
Sandbars larger and more numerous – shallow water, sandy bottom, good current.Good trip for novices and families.
Begin at Lux Bridge on Okatoma Creek – paddle 1.5 miles to confluence with the Bowie , another 5 miles to the take out at bridge on Peps Point Rd. Meanders enough to make trip interesting – some sandbars for picnicking and rest stops. Little development and very few people make for a good wilderness experience.
Good ramps make for easy put in and take out. Easy trip with good current and many sandbars. Good trip for families with kids and/or grandparents.
