Econfina Creek of Washington and Bay Counties Professional Review and Guide

"This is one of the most challenging yet scenic paddles in the state. For starters, the upper half of the state-designated paddling trail features a gradient of 8 feet per mile! Most
Florida streams have a gradient of less than 2 feet per mile.

Draining hilly terrain, Econ?na Creek and its tributaries have carved steep-sided drainages—canyons if you will—through
which the stream speeds. And when you combine the steep gradient and 20-foot-deep chasms, it fashions a sometimes chaotic stream for experienced paddlers only."
