I have never hit the GMR and after reading TC1's post in another thread I may give it a try. I have a couple questions: 1. On the Barefoot Canoe rental website it says the stretch of the GMR from rt. 41 to Tipp Elizabeth Rd. is "challenging" and "experience is needed." Why do they say that? What makes this stretch so challenging? I have experience with the yak, but want to focus on fishing, not paddling all day. 2. Would rt. 571 to Taylorsville Rd. be a worthy float fish-wise? 3. TC1, you mentioned a canoe rental on Ross Rd.? I don't see it on the map, anyone know the name? Thanks!
