Canoe Access Marking System

The sport of "tubing," riding with the river's current on a car or truck inner tube, has become quite popular. Many of the same safety requirements and cautions for watercraft apply to this form of recreation. Check with local authorities to make sure that you may legally go tubing on the selected stream. Wearing a lifejacket is recommended. Be aware of changing conditions. Heavy rain showers may create flash flooding conditions.
