Your journey will begin at Loveland Canoe & Kayak where intrepid explorers will meet to have you checked in, fitted in life vests, and transported to the launch point at Carl Rahe Park.

This portion of the Little Miami River is serene and peaceful making for an excellent kayaking trip for beginners and seasoned pros alike. The water here is calm and not too deep.

About halfway through this 5-mile kayak trip, you'll be able to spot The Château Laroche, commonly referred to as the Loveland Castle by locals. This stunning estate looks as if it was transported from the British Isles. Built in 1920, this historic castle was designed to resemble the architecture from medieval times. Today, the castle remains open 7 days a week from 11 am until 5 pm. It doubles as a fascinating museum and gorgeous event venue.

Be sure to paddle by slowly as you pass this magnificent piece of architecture and be sure to bring a camera with you to snap a pic.
