Update 2018-02-10: And it’s a go for Hagan Bridge on the Withlacoochee River Sunday morning!
Update 2018-02-10: It’s a Go for Five Holes, and probably for Hagan Bridge.
Even the rain likes the weekend. Multiple weather forecasts show chances of rain ranging from 40% to 100% this weekend. Rain is not the best time to be clambering up and down steep slopes at Five Holes, and a thunderstorm is not a good time to be paddling the Withlacoochee River from Hagan Bridge. But we don’t want to call it early, because then both days would for sure be sunny.
So, Outings Chair Phil Hubbard says he will make a decision
5 Holes Clean Up by 10 AM Saturday.
By the way, Five Holes is also known as
Seven Sisters Spring; see also Pictures by Alan Cressler from 2008.

Phil will make a decision on the
Withlacoochee River Paddle from Hagan Bridge to Franklinville Road
by Saturday afternoon by 4 PM.
The good news:
previous rains have raised the water level for easy paddling; if it’s not raining,
on this upstream segment of the
Withlacoochee and Little River Water Trail.
