Kayak Shack

A New Kind of Outdoor Store

We like to think of ourselves as a “Toy Store for the active person.” We offer a truly curated collection of great products; hand selected for their style, features, and functionality.  The clothing and gear you’ll find at Trail to Town will cross over usage boundaries by offering the performance needed in the great outdoors, all while being stylish and comfortable enough to wear when simply shopping for dinner at the local market.

I have always loved The Kayak Shack, and was super excited to see their latest changes they’ve made!  The clothing they have in stock now is great quality, and some new brands I haven’t seen before.  I’m always amazed at how big their selection is.  and somehow they managed to keep all their Kayaks and SUP’s too.  I’ll be back all the time now, just to see what’s new.  Love the name also – Trail to Town really fits now since they have so much more than just Kayaks.
