We will Camp Friday and Saturday nights (make reservations now).
We meet at the trailhead by 8:30am Saturday. The trail head is off of Hwy 301 just north of the Little Manatee Bridge. I will have FTA signs out on the road. We will then Walk, Clip, and paint the blazes as we go around the 6 miles. Then around 1:00 we will meet back at the big picnic shelter for lunch and Potluck. We will have Garbage can Turkey or fried Turkey. FTA chapter meeting included.
Bring good shoes or boots, gloves, water, snacks, sun lotion, bug spray (maybe not) and normal hiking supplies in a day pack. If you have loppers you like to use, you can bring them or I will have extras. Also bring a side for the pot luck.
There will be music at the canoe outpost Saturday night. I think some people attended that event last year. See links below.
Little manatee River is a Nice river to paddle.
