Harris Lake Trip
Put In - Located near the the Car Top boat launch. The actual Car Top boat launch is basically in a swamp and very hard to get out of. It is much easier to walk from the parking area near the boat launch on the asphalt trail past the picnic area and then cut into a grassy path that leads down to a nice open grass area near the power line poles.
Distance/Time - 2.2 miles/1.5 hours
Difficulty - Easy
Trip Directions - From the put in, head left towards the power lines and bridge. I just made a big circle since it was my first time at Harris Lake.
Scenery - Nice park setting and open views. The Shearon Harris Nuclear Plant is an interesting view as you paddle along. Not much wildlife.
Hazards - Hydrylla is located all along the banks and is basically a nuisance. I tried to stay clear of it, the deeper the water the less of it. Watch out for boats. Also, discovered various fire ant mounds along the banks. The park has signs warning you about them.
