Econ River - 419 to Snowhill

  • Jun 28, 2014 · 8:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

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.

    Great paddle! Thanks to everyone for making my sister Ruth feel so welcome! I forgot to "tip" our drivers, Julie and Cedomir, for giving us transport back to our car. I'll get with you on another trip. Thanks again and enjoy Sunday's paddle.

    I’ll be coming from Ormond so if anyone from this area is driving let me know if you like. We can either ride in different vehicles or I have a truck that can easily accommodate few more people and one more kayak.

      Ok, I was planning on leaving at 7 as well. In case there is last minute change 233-5282. You’ll see a truck with a yellow kayak sticking on back.

    For everyone camping with us this weekend...when you arrive at the park take the first right into the camping loop. Look for campsite 5 at the back of the loop to find us. If you arrive late the gate code is 4471.

    June 27, 2014

    • Susan

      Thank you Jim

    Hi Sam,
    I am rejoining your group again. Can I pay you dues when I see you tomorrow, and if I can do you prefer cash or a check?

    June 27, 2014

  • Holly

    Getting tied up at work and won't be able to join tonight. Hoping to at least slip away and catch up with you at least for a bit. If not, safe paddles!

    June 27, 2014

  • Famous A.

    Just to sum up things. We are grilling on Friday night bring whatever you want to throw on the grill. Saturday is taco night. Typically we figure out what we need for Saturday night and hit the store after kayaking! I'm not camping after all. I'll be there bright and early Saturday and I'll be staying for dinner and then heading home.

    June 27, 2014

    • Adam T.

      I'll be a Saturday morning arrival also, though Imma stay through Sunday.

      June 27, 2014

  • Dianne G.

    I want to camp also. Sam, are we able to camp riverside this time and meet up with the group on Sundays paddle?

      I can only camp Fri night and willing to bring food. It'll be my first time camping so I have no idea what kind of food to bring for grilling and sharing.

      June 26, 2014

    • Jim D.

      Nelson, just bring whatever you would like. We will have grills and a camp stove available for you to use if you need it.

      June 26, 2014

  • Sam G.

    If anyone needs to rent a Kayak from us for this trip please post here so that we can arrange for a kayak to be available for you.

      OK / That's two - anyone else need to rent a kayak

      June 25, 2014

  • Famous A.

    Apparently since I asked if we were cooking together it's up to me on dinners. Jen suggested we grill what we want Friday night and share and tacos Saturday night. Sounds great to me. We will need side dishes for Friday. Julie is bringing a pasta salad. I'll bring fresh fruit and corn on the cob. Jim bring the charcoal. Jen is bringing her Dutch oven for dump cake.

    • Rob

      Hi Tracy, Thanks for helping coordinate dinners. Susan and I are bringing chicken and veggie shish kebabs to share for the potluck on Saturday and also grapes, cantaloupe and watermelon for a light and healthy desert. We are also bringing charcoal as well to grill them fresh. Are we changing the potluck tradition for Saturday?

      No pressure Tracy :)

    What time friday will the site be open? Also, what about the group meal? I'd like to participate. What should I bring and how much? Are there showers at this campground?

    June 23, 2014

    • Jim D.

      The campsite becomes available to us at 3:00. Yes there are showers at the campground.

      How do group sites work ? Never did that before...

      May 14, 2014

  • Judy D.

    I put a hold on the group site for Saturday nite, however they require someone to go to a manned park and give cash or check payment. Closest park to me is Red Bug park in Castleberry, or Sylvan lake park, or Sanlando park near Altamonte springs. Anybody in that area that could go down and pay the $30??

    May 14, 2014

  • Judy D.

    I'll call about the group camp if everybody's interested.

    May 13, 2014

    May 13, 2014

    Sam, I'm a little confused by your comment to Ed Harris about camping at Lake Park Mills (posted on the June 29 meetup page). Did you get the group camp site or do we each need to make our own rez?
