Econ River - 419 to Snowhill

  • Jun 22, 2013 · 9:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

This a day paddle / NO camping this time.

This trip takes about 3-5 hours without pushing ourselves.  Lots of big gators, all shy, and birds. Want to check out the eagles nest - see what kind of activity there might be.

 

The Old SR 13 railway and trestle was part of the Flagler Railroad System in the early 1900's and today is part of the Florida National Scenic Trail and is used by hikers to cross the Econlockhatchee River.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The last time we did this river, the water was so high we had to go around the bridge, and could have paddled across the bridge.

Come join me....we can be on the water by 9am.

    Nice and wide but had an odor and the floating, dead catfish were interesting :-0

      Be careful! Big news stories about bacteria in the lakes and rivers! Could have something to do with the dead floating fish?!?!

    Will there be carpooling to the take out spot? On 419 parking is a bit limited. If so should we all be there at 0830 to move vehicles?

    With an overnight trip like this I would have preferred to camp. It's a 300 mile round trip for me so between gas and lodging it would be a little too expensive for this kind of trip, so I guess I will wait for a trip closer and one I can camp.

    June 15, 2013

  • sarah b

    if it helps anyone I can accommodate about people comfortably. you're welcome for friday and or saturday whatever works. I'm about 15-20 minutes from the put in. just let me know, send me an email. I have a queen spare room and a twin (and air bed....)

    June 15, 2013

  • John

    If none of the guys want to share a room for Friday and Saturday, maybe, someone could tell me what the rate is per night so I can make a decision on what to do. Sam???

    June 15, 2013

    • amy

      John, if you have AAA it is just about $100/night includes breakfast I believe. The name of the hotel and the number is in one of the comment threads below.

      June 15, 2013

  • amy

    As the Slackers change. Here is what I have now for the hotel on Fri and Saturday, Me, Ronda, Summer, Stephanie, Marilyn G. Fri only Sheila. Have not heard yet from Mauri about Saturday. Looks like we are going to be only 2 to 3 per room, 2 rooms. Those that have their own rooms are Sam, Joe, Don, Pam/Steve, and Craig/Chris. Additions, corrections, changes?

    June 11, 2013

    • Stephanie L.

      I apologize. I have to pull out for Friday night as something unexpected has come up. I will be there Saturday morning for the paddle and will stay over just Saturday night.

      June 14, 2013

    • amy

      Thanks for letting me know. Well Ronda, it looks like it is you and me and Sheila and Summer.

  • Sharon

    please txt me if you are staying at my house and let me know Fri, Sat or both[masked]-8348. Julie is going to bring her trailer so we can carpool and carry as many kayaks as will fit on that too.

    June 14, 2013

  • Sharon

    For those staying Saturday night, might be fun to go have dinner at Black Hammock after paddling. It is right on Lake Jessup, so pretty scenery, lots of gators and food isn't too bad either. If we stay late enough, they usually have a bad band and dancing :-).

    • Ronda G

      I would be in for this!

      June 11, 2013

    Now that I am confirmed is there any males sharing rooms for Friday and/or Saturday night?

    Ladies - the best option for lodging on Saturday night is La Quinta, 2 double pillowtop beds, free breakfast, $100 a night. It's 20 minutes, 14 miles from where we will be kayaking Sunday. Who wants to join the party?

    I can get room or suites at Disney for $27-33 for pool side rooms or suites. If we are going to do it we might as well have fun.

    April 29, 2013

    • Julie N

      Yes, who is making reservation so I can mail a check!! How much. Only one night for me!!

      April 29, 2013

    • Ronda G

      There are two, maybe three rooms reserved and I was counting you all along! Lol. Just needed confirmation from you! No monies do right now. They were able to make reservations without paying. Glad you are joining us!

    Ok, folks, I'm up for both days and I gues I'm gong to need a crash pad too! Unless theres camping close by.......can I hang with y'all? I have rum!

    • Craig G.

      Mauri, why dont you look to share the room with the 7 girls and join us for Amy's Daquries.

      April 26, 2013

    • Stephanie L.

      Mauri, I'm on the wait list. But if I do get a spot I'd be looking to share a room.

      April 28, 2013

  • lois v.

    I will share a room . I hope there is room for me on this trip.

    April 26, 2013

  • Ronda G

    Sam, will this be a camping overnight trip again? If not, I want to get a hotel room nearby instead of going all the way home between the paddles. I know it is far away, just thinking out loud!

    March 26, 2013

    • A former member
      A former member

      I'm confused now. On the other half of the trip, Sam said no camping. Maybe I've had too much wine...better read it again in the morning!

      April 25, 2013

    • Ronda G

      Marilyn, it was unclear if we were camping on the river or not at first. Sam clarified that we are NOT so now the discussion is to get a hotel room for Saturday night for those of us who are paddling on Sunday. You are welcome to join in!

      April 25, 2013

    I would love to go but am scheduled to teach that weekend.

    Sam, will there be an option to camp and join with the group on Sunday at Snow Hill? I'm signed up for Sunday and would like to do this section also.

    April 24, 2013

    • Sam G.

      There will be no camping on this paddle. We will do the first section today and the second section tomorrow.

      April 24, 2013

    • Suzanne

      OK...No problem!

      April 24, 2013

    will need to rent a kayak, thanks.
