Curiously, Cypress Creek South does not appear on either of the two maps of the Suwannee River Wilderness Trail, but it is on Suwannee River Water Management District’s map of Turner Bridge, Roline, Cypress Creek South:

Water level: Watch the USGS White Springs gage for at least 51′.

If it gets below 51′, we will consider the backup plan instead. The graph above is live, so see for yourself.

Backup in case of low or high water or more likely weather:

When: Later in the day or Sunday
