Join us for a backwater paddle on Deep Creek . The area is part of the St Johns River Management District and jointly owned by the state. The wetland/swamp is part of the St Johns River floodplain. This is a great paddle and a lot of fun! We can check out the new bridge over the creek which is part of the Florida rails to trails program. The old trestle is long gone.
We welcome all skill levels. This will be a leisure paddle. If you're in a hurry, this is not for you.
