New route: Roline Boat Ramp to Hunter Creek Launch, Suwannee River, Hamilton County, Florida. Join us for this sunny five-hour paddle on the world-famous Suwannee River, led by Practicing Geologist Dennis Price.
Dennis has moved us upstream, due to our previous put-in being closed due to high water. The new route goes by the lally column remains of Turner Bridge.
When: Gather 9 AM, launch 10 AM, end 3 PM, Saturday, September 17, 2022
Put In: Roline Boat Ramp. From White Springs, travel north on SE CR 135; cross over SE CR 6 onto NE 180 Boulevard (Woodpecker Route); travel north to NE 25 Way; turn right and follow road to ramp.
Take Out: Hunter Creek Launch. Right bank, 3.15 miles downstream from Cypress Creek South Launch (FL 6). From White Springs, go east on US 41 S, turn left onto Suwanee Street aka Third Street, continue onto CR 135, after 12.5 miles (pass SE 54th Drive) turn right, go 0.4 miles to the Suwannee River.
Bring: the usual personal flotation device, boat, paddles, food, drinking water, warm clothes, and first aid kit. Also trash pickers and trash bags: every WWALS outing is also a cleanup. Mosquitoes can be bad at dusk so come prepared.
