Paddle Gum Slough

  • June 29, 2013 · 10:00 AM

June 29th: 10:00am Kayak Gum Slough, Inverness, Fl: We will start on the Withlacoochee River and paddle for approx. 20 minutes then turn into a narrow slough winding through Half Moon Wildlife Management Area. This is a beautiful wilderness paddle through shady hardwood swamp of Cypress, Oak and Sweet Gum trees. The creek splits and comes back together multiple times as we make the approx 6 mile paddle to Gum Springs. The first part of this trip will be through dark tannin water, but as we near the springs, the water below us clears up. The trip is a true wilderness paddle through pristine woods and marsh. Closer to the springs, the water is clear, with a white sand bottom, and cool water for swimming. This is NOT an easy trip and you must have your own kayak. The paddle upstream is strenuous but the journey is absolutely beautiful, as is the spring head (we will stop and swim) and the return trip is easy going with the flow. Bring lunch and lots of water and wear water shoes. This trip is limited to 8 kayakers. For details on meeting location, you much contact Mary-Slater at[masked] or [masked]
