Hurricane Matthew hit St Johns County on October 7, 2016. High water from a weeklong Noreaster was followed by this slow moving hurricane. Water levels in the St Johns were at record high levels and forced flooding of Outback Crab Shack which is currently still closed. The main channel of Six Mile Creek is easily navigable by kayak and boats to the pump house at Mill Creek. Turning further into Six Mile, i soon ran into massive downed trees. This journey hit end at the 2.5 mile mark, where normally you could paddle 2.9 miles before hitting downfalls. Check my other trips here to see.
