Kayak the Goodale State Park's Canoe Trail

Goodale SP Parking Area - Search Nearby - Added by Seth Berry

This 3 mile canoe trail is a hidden gem for those looking for a relaxing paddle through a forest of bald cypress trees and a variety of wildlife including alligators and great blue heron.

Put in your personal canoe or kayak near the spillway and paddle across Adams Mill Pond. Once you reach Pine Tree Creek, follow the white trail signs and wind through a forest of bald cypress trees for 1.5 miles. At the point where two logs are downed across the creek, turn around and return following the State Park signs along the trail.
