Parking on the median on the east, Lowndes County, side, you can climb down the highway rocks and down a creek bed to the river.
The riverbed is rather rocky with native limestone.
There was some water in the Withlacoochee today. According to the US 84 gage on the other side of that bridge, the level was 2.05 feet (85.55 NAVD88) around mid-day.
And only a few hundred feet upstream from here is where Spectra Energy from Houston, Texas, plans to gouge its Sabal Trail fracked methane pipeline under the river, the road, and the railroad.
Here’s a video:
