U.S. 41/E. Tamiami Trail. Just West C.R. 839 (HP Williams Wayside Park), Ochopee, FL
This will be a one way shuttle paddle. It is one of the MIPA 10 "essential" paddles.
Meet at the Turner River Canoe Launch on US 41 to offload. Please be at the launch area unloaded and ready to transport vehicles at 9:00am. You will drive to the take out on the Chokoloskee causeway and return to the launch by shuttle. We will paddle to the Chokoloskee to take out. Lunch will follow at a restaurant tba. The paddle is not terribly difficult but there is some open water river and bay toward the end of the paddle. Distance is about 10 mile. Turner River has the tightest Mangrove Tunnels that you probably will experience on the upper part of the paddle. Here is a track link from previous paddle. http://www.wikiloc.com/wikiloc/view.do?id=12329251
