This site was born out of my frustration with being unable to find paddling sites that provided all the information I’d like to have about a new destination.

For instance, I’ve never seen a description of taking out at Wekiva Springs State Park that lays out just how painful the two-hundred yard uphill trudge through soft sand from the river back to the parking lot will be. Or that the Snow Hill Road take-out on the Econlockhatchee River has been rebuilt by the County with anti-erosion measures that will tear up the bottom of a boat.

Good maps, both road maps to the put-in or take-out and maps of the water itself seem unusually hard to find, as well.

So in these trip reports I’m going to try to provide the kind of information I’d be looking for when investigating a new destination … hopefully you’ll find it useful as well.
