Hike Big Oak Trail!

  • Suwanee River State Park

    3631 201st Path , Live Oak, FL (map)

    30.383856 -83.168266

  • Lets hike the Big Oak Trail at Suwanee River State park! This is a great hike, a long loop trail along both the Suwanee and Withlachoochee rivers. We will see ruins of old spring houses, hike abandoned bridges, encounter all sorts of interesting wildlife, and view the incredible "Big Oak" itself.

    This is part 1 of 2 of a mega-hike weekend at Suwanee State Park.

    Directions from Jax:
    - I-10 West to Exit #275 (Hwy 90). Carefully note this exit number as I-10 intersects Hwy 90 at multiple locations.
    - Make a left at the end of the ramp, onto Hwy 90 West.
    - Drive West On Hwy 90 approximately 5 miles.
    - You will see a large sign for Suwanee River State Park, make a right.
    - Drive straight through to the entrance to Suwannee River state park.
    - Enter the park, pay the admission fee, and proceed to the day use/picnic area.

    Meetup Date: Saturday May 11, 2013.
    Meetup Time: 9:00 am.
    Park Website: http://www.floridasta...
    Park address: [masked]st Path, Live Oak, Florida 32060
    Park Phone: (386)[masked]

    We will meetup at the main parking/day use area within the park. Note that hikers are responsible for covering their own park admission fees: Park Fees are $4 for single occupancy vehicles, $5 for multi-occupancy vehicles. Campsites are available via www.reserveamerica.com. The park has cabins for rent, call the park at (386)[masked] for more information.

    This is a very demanding 10-12 mile hike open to experienced hikers in good physical condition. Hikers should budget about 7 hours for this activity. It is likely to be HOT and hikers should be prompt and bring plenty of water! The park day use area has restrooms with water and a vending machine. Hikers should bring bug-spray, snacks, lunch, and shoes comfortable for walking long distances.
    We will eat lunch at the primitive campsite where the rivers join. Note that this is NOT an overnight hike, we will be hiking back to the park's day use area. Note that I may cancel the hike due to inclement weather or other unforseen situations.

    Hikers may also want to write down any health conditions on a 3x5 card and place that in a conspicuous location in their pack. This would only be accessed in case of a health emergency. Activity Leaders will keep any and all of this information confidential.

    Note this is a pet free activity.


    See you there!!!

      Big stretch on the pets: All day hike with a bunch of strangers. If you do decide to bring your dog, remember to bring food, water, and a bowl to eat/drink from.
