June 3- In Search of Secret Springs
We will meet at the Bear Pond Trailhead at the southern entrance of Seminole State Forest at 9:00 AM. The entrance to the park is less than 1/2 mile west of the Wekiva River and north of State Road 46. We plan to spend three hours exploring these hidden springs and will end the morning with a picnic lunch. If you can stay for the picnic, please bring your own food and drink. If you need to leave at noon, you will be able to go back to your car at the parking lot at Bear Pond.
It is extremely wet at Seminole State Forest and we will be hiking through shallow water at several times during the day. Please be sure to bring shoes that you don’t mind getting wet. Mosquitoes will be relatively abundant at times so dress accordingly. Fee: $25 payable at www.FriendsofWekiva.org. Use the Donate with PayPal button and write Seminole Springs in the notes section.
