Spring Creek Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Exotic and beautiful, lovely Spring Creek is the southernmost tributary of the Flint River, tucked into the southwestern corner of the state. The creek’s waters are largely stream fed, in contrast to the other Coastal Plain streams.

Spanish moss graces the large cypress trees that tower over (and in) the stream’s corridor; banks rise high from the stream, thereby eliminating much of the usual wet ?oodplain ?ora. Planer trees, pines, and hardwood forests surround the water. Limestone outcroppings add to the wilderness beauty of the partially shaded stream, and small shoals and rocky shallows enliven the paddling."

Holy cow. If someone had warned me about this run, I wouldn't have done it. First thing's first: it is a pristine, beautiful, run. However, years of storms and neglect left out tribe of 6 scrambling over, under, and around 50-60 (no exaggeration) different log-jams that were completely impassible. The problem with some of these is that each log jam is essentially a habitat for fire ants, spiders, water mocassins, and alligators. What should have taken 5 hours ended up taking us nearly 9 hours to go from US-27 down to Smith's Landing. We barely made it out before it was too dark/dangerous to continue. I STRONGLY recommend that you bring a chainsaw, a flashlight, and leave no later than 8am if you intend to run the whole 9.6 miles.
