Paddling the Florida Circumnavigational Trail | Forgotten Coast

If you missed it on Dimensions, here is our video on the Florida Circumnavigational Saltwater Paddling Trail.  This segment runs from Port Saint Joe to the Saint Marks National Wildlife Refuge.  There are several camping options along the way; Doug Alderson (Of FDEP’s Office of Greenways and Trails) takes us to St. George Island State Park to look at some sites.
