Kayaking with Crystal Clear Kayaks on the Upper Klamath Canoe Trail

Join us on our favorite spring-fed wetlands for a calm water paddle in a crystal clear kayak. Now you can enjoy these picturesque waters paddling in a Crystal Clear Kayak with a transparent view CLEAR to the depths of these protected wetlands. There’s no better way to get an unobstructed view of the water and all that flows beneath and around you than in these completely clear kayaks.

Paddle this unique protected wetlands trail known as the Upper Klamath Canoe Trail. Explore this picturesque wetlands fed by Malone Springs. The Upper Klamath Canoe Trails is a known home of beaver, marsh birds, waterfowl, turns, pelicans, muskrats, perch and native redband rainbow trout. With your crystal clear kayak, we can keep an eye out for wildlife above and below the water!  Malone Springs is a fantastic place to kayak and using a crystal clear kayak allows full view of the water below and beside you too! Plus, photo ops are super fun with a crystal clear kayak in such a beautiful spot.

Slow-moving and meandering, Malone Springs is a beautiful out-and-back paddle. Calm water is a great place to learn to kayak so beginners and kids are welcome.
