Go with the flow on the Little Manatee River

Published June 1, 2009 - Examiner.com
Visitors can experience the river in many different ways, whether they want to be on the river or just next to it. Paddling is probably the most direct route to get close to the water. The Little Manatee River Canoe Trail is five miles of blackwater, full of fun twists and turns as well as birds, otters, alligators, and the occasional manatee. The trail is located about 25 minutes south of Tampa, just off of Hwy 301 near Sun City Center. Regular paddlers can bring their own equipment and find their own put-ins, or newcomers can try a local outfitter like Canoe Outpost to help them with boat rental and shuttle service.
