Paddle at Two O'Clock Bayou

Meet at Pack and Paddle at 2 p.m. for a Level 1 paddle trip down Two O'Clock Bayou. This trip is perfect for beginners but interesting enough for more advanced paddlers, too. Since it is only five miles long, the pace is calm and leisurely and allows plenty of time to chat and take photographs as you paddle along black water and beautiful cypress trees. Two O'Clock Bayou, located in the upper Atchafalaya Basin between Port Barre and Krotz Springs, is home to some of the oldest cypress trees in the South and many species of animals.
