CHASSAHOWITZKA RIVER
CHASSAHOWITZKA

For many people, the “Chaz” is their favorite place to paddle on the west coast of Florida. Some have spotted birds, manatee, raccoons, otters, alligators and even deer, bobcat or a Florida black bear. We, on the other hand, are out to spot springs. Actually, the real joy is the scenery in the creeks leading to the springs. On this tour, the journey is better than the destination. There are seven springs along the tour that have been reached so far. Starting with the closest springs, we will explore the primary springs, the Yoga center, Blair's Creek, Salt Creek, and maybe even Potter Creek. After the spring on Blair, we’ll even search out the “crack in the earth”, where we will have lunch. After Salt Creek, we’ll check out the ruins of the old railroad trestle.
