Launched at the first launch and paddled down to Moody's to let some people off. Paddled a little over half way to Janice landing, and spent the night on a sandbar, camped overnight there, woke up the next morning and headed out. Over all a great experience and would be good for family and friends. Wasn't too technical and definitely makes for a great day trip or overnight trip.
Nice little 2 day trip. Launched the canoes at Moody's Landing and finished at Cypress Creek Landing about 16 miles down. Camped about a mile north of Janice Landing on a great sandbar after seeing a deer cross the creek and climb the ledge up the opposite side. Water level was at roughly 5.5 feet, which kept us from having to do any walking or lifting the canoes over logs.
This relatively easy kayak and canoe trail winds its way through DeSoto National Forest. Don't expect rapids or too many other impediments, the paddling is very easy. White sand beaches throughout the river make it an ideal spot to camp along the way.
