Gary Worob Invites Us to a Juniper Creek Paddle and Spa
Date: Saturday, August 7, 2004
Time: to be announced
Place: Munson, Florida just north of Milton
Comments: This is one of the laziest and most beautiful creeks in the area that I know of. The water is crystal clear and has white sandy bottom with lots of white sandy beaches along the way. The trip is 10 miles and very easy with lots of stops for swimming and "as promised" places to gather "spa clay" along the banks to smear yourself and bake those city blues away and then jump in the water to be "renewed." While the trip is not long, I have never done it in less than 4-1/2 hours since there is so much good swimming to do and beaches to stop and snack at. So shared lunch is a good idea. This is one you won't forget if you love paddling! Dinner afterwards at local restaurant!
Some of us will camp in the area and may do a "screaming" bike ride on a designated trail for bikes only at Bear Lake in Munson. It is 6 miles of beautiful trail and lots of fun. there are great hiking only trails here also and lots to see if you don't want to bike. This is part of the extensive Blackwater Forest area above Milton, Florida and only about an hour and 15 minutes from Daphne.
I will post more details on camping and times and places later, and I will try to have maps and details at the meeting.

P.S. If you have someone who really wants to paddle but does not want to go the distance, there is a shorter trip of 5 miles with easy shuttle.
