started at bellamy bridge, the beginning of the trip way nice and relaxing. then all the trouble began. Lots of downed trees to go over or under. one time we had to get out of the kayak and drag it over a downed tree and get back in praying we didn't flip. what the map doesn't tell you is the river dead ends in Florida caverns state park. we learned the hard way on this trip. if you do plan on paddling this river make sure you have all day to do it. cause it will take all day.
