Day Trip Report

Great relaxing, peaceful paddle trip.
Begin by crossing turn of the century Mill Pond. Then enter 3 mile canoe trail which winds through a tupelo cypress swamp.
I saw many types of waterfowl. The most impressive was the the nesting blue herons. I saw six nests in all. Also saw various turtles, several snakes, and assorted birds. Heard distinct bellowing of male alligator while I ate my lunch in a shaded pool.
Pay close attention to trail markers, and when they run out...turn around. All in all a great, relaxing paddle in a Wilderness Systems Pungo 120.
$2.00 admittance fee to park.
Kayak rental (if appropriate) is $7.00.
About 10 miles off of I-20. See Goodale State Park website
