Suwannee River Chainsaw Cleanup, Part 2


If you have paddled recently on the upper Suwannee above Fargo, you would have stopped a couple of times to portage around large trees that have fallen across the river. This cleanup will help to make paddling through this section easier and much safer for all boaters. You do not have to use a saw, you are welcome to come and enjoy the unspoiled wilderness; however, if you have a chainsaw, sawzall, or handsaw and know how to use it, bring it. It sounds like work but it is actually an enjoyable day on the river. The river is very low, be prepared to get wet.
We'll meet at the Fargo Boat Ramp and work out a shuttle to the put in. Be on time, phone service can be iffy here and we are launching from an unmarked landing. Thanks to Adam Schock of the Conservation Fund for permission to use Three Steps Landing for launching.
Please comment below if you have any questions. Hope to see you!
Free: This outing is free because it is a cleanup.
Paddle: 5 miles, 4 hours.
Shuttle: 6.2 miles, 45 minutes.

Withlacoochee River (North), Allen Ramp to SRSP

Allen Boat Ramp

Double Door Spring is an awesome place to see for those who haven’t paddled this part of the wild and beautiful Withlacoochee River. We will paddle through numerous rocky shoals over 8.44 miles, requiring some skills so this outing may not be appropriate for beginners and young children. There are many other clear springs we will also explore.
Put In: Allen Ramp, Take Out: Suwannee River State Park Ramp
$5 per vehicle parking fee at SRSP, unless you have a Fla. State Park annual pass.
Bring: the usual personal flotation device, boat, paddles, food, drinking water, warm clothes, and first aid kit. Also trash pickers and trash bags: every WWALS outing is also a cleanup.
Free: This outing is free to WWALS members, and $10 for non-members. You can pay at the outing, or online: https://wwals.net/outings

Come on time and be prepared to help out with the shuttle of 20 miles round trip. This outing includes the traditional shuttle. Everybody takes their boats to the put-in, most people drive to the take-out, and the drivers pile into one or two vehicles and go back to the put-in.
