Though dominated by the St. Lucie Canal coming out of Lake Okeechobee on its lowermost reaches, the St. Lucie River has a surprisingly wild and preserved segment of its upper South Fork that makes for a scenic paddling escape. Furthermore, most of its banks are protected as part of Halpatiokee Regional Park. The tidally influenced brackish water twists as an ever-narrowing serpentine stream bordered in a riot of vegetation, morphing from salty mangroves to canopies of epiphyte-covered live oaks. Small islands and dead-end oxbows provide additional exploration opportunities. This stream is a no-wake zone for motorboaters. Crowded vegetation leaves its upper stretches to paddlers only. Halpatiokee Regional Park has a strategically located concessionaire that offers a launch and kayak/canoe rentals at the paddle’s beginning. Be apprised that this is an out-and-back endeavor, with no upper take-out; thus, it’s a 6.4-mile round-trip.
