This trail is an unusually beautiful, swift-flowing creek in northwest Florida that empties into the Gulf of Mexico near Panama City. The upper 11 miles of the trail (between Scott's Bridge and Walsingham Park) is one of the most difficult stretches of river in the state. Narrow, with tight curves and several fast water chutes, log jams and shallow water also make paddling difficult on the upper river, so expect to portage. The lower section is spring-fed and slower. The creek is ever-changing and the type of paddling experience and degree of difficulty is dependent on widely fluctuating water levels.
