More people want to go after the pictures and reports from a few weeks ago, so WWALS has scheduled a redo from Roline to Cypress Creek on the iconic Suwannee River in north Florida. Also with a slightly later start this time; more convenient for far-away folks.
When: 10AM Saturday September 3rd 2016
Put in: Roline Launch, 30°33’51.0″N 82°43’30.6″W or 30.564185, -82.725167
Duration: 7.5 miles, about 4 hours.
Shuttle: 6.2 road miles, 15 minutes each way, 45 minutes total
Take out: Cypress Creek South Launch
Responsible party: Phil Hubbard
Bring: Boat, paddle, personal flotation device, snacks, drinking water. If you don’t have a boat, let us know, and we can probably rustle one up for you.
Curiously, Cypress Creek South does not appear on either of the two maps of the Suwannee River Wilderness Trail, but it is on Suwannee River Water Management District’s map of Turner Bridge, Roline, Cypress Creek South:
USGS Gage, Suwannee River at White Springs, by National Weather Service.
If it gets below 51′, we will consider the backup plan instead. The graph above is live, so see for yourself.
Backup in case of low or high water or more likely weather:
When: Later in the day or Sunday
