Econ River
* Must bring your own canoe or kayak, and have paddling experience. There are snags in the water, and sometimes larger obstructions. * Meet around 8:30 am. * 9 am - We will start shuttling cars to the take out. * We'll paddle from Oviedo (SR 419) to Geneva (Snow HIll Rd), about 8 miles. Tannin colored water with periodic white sandy banks, and no development. * Bring lunch/water/hat/sunscreen. So-so shade. Long carry at the put-in, bring wheels if you have them. * May depend on water level. Sometimes gps doesn't get you to exact place, but should get you near. It's the corner of CR 419 and Willingham Rd, Oviedo (or Chuluota is also listed as town!)

You will need to sign a Waiver/Release of Liability form to paddle with us during your 60 Day Free Trial period (ask your Trip Coordinator for the form).
