Aucilla River: FNST Fun Hike Part I, “The Aucilla River Uncovered”

  • Feb 8, 2014 · 9:00 AM

The hike is full so make sure you have the directions and have emailed me your anytime phone number and email because the weather forecast is iffy. Nevertheless, there are others who want to go if you have changed your mind about going!

Explore a 4.7-mile visible portion of the prehistoric Aucilla and learn about the people and animals that lived there 14,500 years ago. See where the Burnt Bridge used to be as we hike along the river’s edge. We’ll eat lunch at the rapids. Bring lunch, water and snacks. Email hike leader for meeting time and location, and include your full name and best anytime telephone and email address. Limit 25 people. To sign up, contact Leader: Wendy Dial (941)[masked] or [masked]  See Feb. 16 for Part II of this series.

    Excellent hike. Glad the rain didn't scare us off. Thanks to Wendy for leading and providing information about the area and its early inhabitants and to George for serving as sweep and sharing his extensive knowledge about the flora. I'm already looking forward to next Sunday's hike on the Aucilla Sinks. - Helen Wigersma, Western Gate

      The rain is to be moved out by 10ish.

      February 7, 2014

    • Wendy B.

      We're going. The highest probability I am seeing as of 9:42 p.m. is 60 percent and that looks like it is for early morning.

    Wendy: since the Weather Channel is now predicting a 70% chance of rain for Saturday, is there a good chance that the hike will be cancelled? Or do you hike, regardless of rain? Since I'm coming from quite a distance, this may figure into my decision. Thanks. - Helen
