Add another section of Manatee's Blueway Trails to your bucket list. A 1 way paddle down this meandering river winds for several miles through oak hammocks and through salt marshes before joining with the Upper Manatee river to form the Manatee River. We will launch from the Mulholland Rd bridge where it crosses Gamble Creek and take out at the Ft Hamer boat launch. While not for first time paddlers, this is an easy beginner paddle. What to bring: · Life vest, PFD, whistle, etc. · Water, hat and bug spray · Snack · Waterproof camera (spare batteries) Directions: I 75, exit 224 (Ellenton Outlet exit) Turn left onto US 301 Go 2 miles, turn right onto Old Tampa Rd Go 3.4 miles, turn right onto Ft.
