Ride the skunk train through the redwoods and then enjoy a peaceful paddle on the Noyo River.

Tracks to Kayaks - A Wilderness Adventure Mendocino County Style!

Tracks to Kayaks is a unique way to explore the redwoods of the Noyo River Valley.  Ride the Skunk Train from Fort Bragg to Northspur.  On the return from Northspur, disembark from the train to kayak 2.5 miles on the Noyo River Estuary back to Fort Bragg.


The Skunk Train departs at 10am from the Depot in Fort Bragg.  Participants enjoy a scenic trip into the redwoods with a lunch and turn around stop at Northspur.  Participants can purchase lunch at Northspur.

On the return trip, the train stops before its last crossing of the Noyo River.  Tracks to Kayaks participants are greeted there by their kayak guide (Cate or Jeff).  A quick paddle lesson is then followed by a 2.5 mile leisurely paddle down the Noyo River to Dolphin Isle.  While paddling, learn about the wildlife and ecology of the Noyo River watershed.  The 2.5 miles takes approximately 1.5 hours and is then followed by a shuttle ride back to the train depot.

This is a dry and mild kayak tour in tandem kayaks.  No experience is necessary.  Children must be 8 years of age to participate.  Individuals with special needs should contact Liquid Fusion Kayaking about accommodations before purchasing tickets.  Pets are not permitted on this trip.
