We put in at the bridge that passes over Big Creek Bayou off of Hwy 115. We put in and went right towards Saline River. There were no alligators on this trip which we found very funny considering how hot it was. We thought certainly we would see at least one sunning himself, but all we seen were plenty of birds (including a red headed woodpecker) and a few turtles.
All in all, it was a very relaxing paddle with beautiful scenery. We paddled about 2 miles before getting to the lake then turned around and headed back. We will certainly go back for this paddle again, but next time we will go to the left and see where it takes us.
This is a very easy paddle and I recommend it to anyone. We will bring our fishing poles next time because there were plenty of fish jumping.
