Canoeing on the Loxahatchee River from Riverbend Park can be challenging at times. There are 2 "low head" dams that require portaging (taking the canoes out of the water and going around the dams). There are ramps and piers at the dams to make it easier to go around, but for older people or children, it may be a bit of a struggle. There are also some fallen trees at times along the route that may require you to go over them that can require you to get out and drag your canoe over. During the drier months, the river may be too shallow in places to canoe and you will have to turn around and canoe back to the park. This is "upstream" and may be a bit too strenuous for some. At another times of the year, you can canoe all the way to Jonathan Dickenson State Park where the canoe outfitter from Riverbend Park will pick you and the canoes up and return you to Riverbend. They only do this certain times of the year on certain days of the week, so check with them. If you are looking for an easier trip, you can rent canoes from Jonathan Dickinson State Park and take the Loxahatchee River in the opposite direction. The first part of this trip is on wide sections of the river, and you can go up the smaller sections of the river which is the most scenic areas. You can also visit Trapper Nelson's camp which is very interesting. Either way, the Loxahatchee is one of the last original scenic waterways that is virtually untouched and is very much worth experiencing. Hope this works out for you. Enjoy! Oh, by the way, there is a guided boat tour that leaves from Jonathan Dickerson State Park that takes you up the Loxahatchee in a bigger covered boat with bench seating. They visit the Trapper Nelson camp and is a great trip for older folks or kids who may have trouble canoeing the river.
