(Middle Econfina from Walsingha) A beautiful section of the Econfina became very challenging as we met one blowdown after another on the less-paddled portion of the creek.

On Saturday, October 3 six paddlers from the WFCKC paddled the upper section of the Econfina from Scott's Road down to Walsingham Bridge. Water gage at Bennet was 5.6. They made it in good shape, although everyone said they were tired from the constant manuevering and turning, and they would like to go when the water level was a little higher.

On Sunday, 9 paddlers (including myself) paddled the middle section of the Econfina Canoe Trail from Walsingham Bridge to SR 20. Since the water level was lower than when the ACKC club paddled, (5.6 at Bennet) there were three pull-overs, all needing to be done by entering the creek, or balancing on a log, since the banks in those spots were conducive for dragging a boat around. I thought the paddle was easy, and the creek was shallow, and sandy. Looking forward to many more fun paddles on that stretch. The springs are the big attraction, plus the creek has very little development.
