Expedition leader Will Hart says about tomorrow’s paddle from Allen Ramp to Suwannee River State Park on the Withlacoochee River,
“Water levels are higher now than expected when the outing was planned. All of the springs and shoals will be under water at this level, however we are still on to paddle. The river will also be a bit murky with some floating debris due to runoff from the woods. At these levels it is considered “not for beginners” due to the current and fast flow.
“It will also be a little strenuous paddling up the last 1/4 mile at the Suwannee River confluence at this level.”
If you don’t want to try that last quarter mile upstream part, there is an earlier takeout available.
