Explore the Many Texas Paddling Trails with an Overnight Kayak Rental from ACK!

New Texas Paddling Trails Means More To Explore

Texas Parks and Wildlife Paddling Trails
Texas Parks and Wildlife Paddling Trails

Who doesn’t enjoy paddling down the rivers, creeks, lakes and bayous of Texas? Thanks to our friends at the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD), we can do just that. Every month it seems like the TPWD is opening new Texas Paddling Trails throughout the state. Just this month they unveiled a pair along Guadalupe River in Gonzalez that are appropriately named the Come and Take It Paddling Trail and Independence Paddling Trail. These additions bring their total to 57 official Texas Paddling Trails! And why not? Texas is a GREAT place to paddle with plenty of places to explore!

Having more than 3,700 named streams, 15 major rivers and about 3,300 miles of tidal shoreline along the Gulf Coast, the water has always been there to paddle on. However, now with these designated trails we have access to resources such as maps (including put-in and take-out points), common wildlife & ecology, fishing tips and private property reminders – all great things to have when planning a trip!

Grab an Overnight Kayak Rental and Get To It!

Even if you haven’t purchased your own personal paddle craft yet, there’s no reason to cross these trails off of your summer agenda. Every one of our four ACK locations offers overnight kayak, canoe and even SUP rentals (see pricing, available models and more) which are perfect for exploring on your OWN schedule. Unlike rental companies that restrict you to certain days and times or just charge by the hour, ACK gives you the flexibility to paddle where you want, when you want. So what are you waiting for? Grab yourself a kayak rental and go do some summer paddling while you still can!

ACK Austin Caught in the ACT!

Never a Dull Moment at the ACK Austin Store

With the beautiful weather and the 4th of July weekend  quickly approaching, I’ve been dying to check out one of our performance paddles and get out on the water. The ACK Austin store being the closest of our 4 ACK stores to me, I decided this afternoon would be the perfect time for me to pop in and see what they were up to.  I guess I’m not the only one with the water in mind this weekend because the store was hoppin’! We had guys running around doing all sorts of things. One was giving advice to some first time customers. Another was installing a new rack system on an SUV and third was even repairing a kayak! Sometimes I wonder, what can’t these guys do!?!
