Suwannee marina may serve as hub on paddling trail

Published December 06, 2006
A state land acquisition council will vote this week on buying a marina in the town of Suwannee to serve as the southern hub of the Suwannee River Wilderness Trail.

The paddling trail stretches 170 miles from White Springs to Suwannee. Hubs for paddlers to launch into the river and to get out for lodging and services in nearby towns are being located along the waterway.

The Suwannee River Wilderness Trail is a $10 million joint effort by the state and the Suwannee River Water Management District. The trail provides a more organized way for people to paddle the Suwannee, said John Webb of Suwannee River Canoe and Kayak in Branford.
