Suwannee draws adventurous paddlers

Published 10/21/2010 Miami Herald
The Suwannee, which flows for about 235 miles from its headwaters in South Georgia's Okefenokee Swamp to empty into the Gulf of Mexico, always has drawn adventurous paddlers. But the creation of the Wilderness Trail in the past few years has made the Florida section more accessible.

A public-private partnership of state and county agencies and cities and towns in the Suwannee Basin designated a network of canoe/kayak launches, small lodgings, river camps, parks and town centers as hubs for visiting paddlers.
