Seven Rivers Less Paddled

Published 5/13/2010 New York Times
Dug by slaves in the 1850s to transport cotton, the canal is only five miles long, but to reach it, visitors have to paddle nine miles from Wacissa, Fla., to the Goose Pasture Recreation Area. From there, look for signs to the Slave Canal, two miles away. Finding the start can be tricky, so first-timers would be well advised to carry a GPS device or go with a guide.
