Explore a new kayak trail in a mangroves and salt marsh environment. Paddle to the Salt Spring,, and to a sandy beach at Durnew Key, a half mile offshore. See stilt houses in the Gulf. We can stop for a lunch break at the key, 2.miles.from the launch.
It is a pretty park with new boardwalks. I'll be there early for birdwatching on hiking trails with Clearwater Audubon, and hope to see.more birds and wildlife from the water.
