Big Bend Saltwater Paddling Trail Guide
The 50-page Big Bend Saltwater Paddling Trail guide contains detailed maps with GPS points, mileage figures and compass bearings to help you locate campsites and explore this fascinating coastline as well as interpretive information about the rich natural and cultural history of this region. It is printed on durable, water-resistant paper and spiral bound for easy use in a kayak.
As outlined in the guide, the 155-mile trail includes side trips to springs, wild rivers, historical sites, wildlife havens and small coastal towns. Seven designated primitive campsites exclusively for trail users are spaced 10 to 14 miles apart and require permits. The trail has been extended to Yankeetown and includes camping at Shell Mound County Park, managed by Levy County and three primitive campsites in the Wacassassa Preserve, managed by the Florida Park Service.
