|Thanks very much to Jeff Ripple for the excellent recommendation of this canoe trail. It is an 8.7 mile loop trail. The trail begins with a mile long canal and then enters Halfway Creek. A mile long mangrove tunnel connects with the Barren River drainage. Interesting hydrology here. We started the trip around low tide. I think the Halfway Creek section was neutral current. We hit the mangrove tunnel section and there was a swift current heading towards the Barren River. When we hit the Barren River we had to paddle against a strong current for a couple of miles to a series of lakes which seem to have a neutral current.|
The water in this image was exceptionally smooth. The sign at the put-in says the loop trail is too new to have a map. The trail is marked with PVC poles but there aren't too many of them. The first PVC marker for the loop says "Loop".
