Spokane Parks and Recreation is once again offering a Saturday shuttle service for boaters looking to paddle the Little Spokane River. Taking advantage of the shuttle service, which is only $8 per person, takes much of the hassle out of this classic Spokane area river trip by allowing you to show up with only one vehicle (and just one Discover Pass) and your boats and gear. The Parks and Recreation shuttle gives you and your canoe, kayak or SUP a lift from the 9 Mile take out straight to the put in at St. Georges. Shuttles run on Saturdays hourly from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., July 2 until September 3. Pre-register at spokaneparks.org. You can pay the $8 fee on-site with a check or card (no cash) – call 509-363-5418 for questions. Inner tubes, rafts, dogs and alcohol are not allowed on the Little Spokane, and PFDs (life jackets) are required. Youth 17 and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to catch a shuttle ride. Be sure to have a valid Discover Pass in your vehicle window at the take out. //
