Add To Trip Planner Directions

Fresh water paddle thru riverine swamp along the Suwannee River.

Length: 3.8 miles from Anderson Landing boat ramp, along residential canals to Lock Creek; continuing thru riverine floodplain, freshwater water marsh to the Suwannee River and return to Anderson Landing boat ramp.

Time:  2 hours

Skill Level: Safe for beginner paddlers because waters are protected along canal and creek, with only a small section on the Suwannee River subject to wind.  Basic navigational skills are required to follow paddle map.

CAUTION:  Creek may be impassable at very low tides, due to fallen trees, mud flats and too little water.  Winds greater than 10 mph can create 1-2 foot waves on the Suwannee River.
