Located at the headwaters of the Wekiva River, the beautiful vistas within this park offer a glimpse of what Central Florida looked like when Timucuan Indians fished and hunted these lands. Just one hour from most central Florida attractions, Wekiwa Springs offers visitors the opportunity to relax in a natural setting, enjoy a picnic, or take a swim in the cool spring. Canoeists and kayakers can paddle along the Wekiva River and Rock Springs Run. Thirteen miles of trails provide opportunities for hiking, bicycling, and horseback riding. This is a very popular park on weekends. To ensure entrance into the park, we recommend arriving early, otherwise, the parking area will be full and you may not be able to enter. Options for camping include a full facility campground and primitive camping areas. Canoe and kayak rentals are available.

Easy trail. Park is still cleaning debris from storms but trails are clear and well marked.

It was very nice. We came out to camp cozy and loved where it was at. No one bothered us. For Florida camping it was pretty primitive. They have a bear box and a non-potable water facet. The bear box was my favorit! After the hike in water and snacks awaited us with an awesome note etc! It was so cool so we decided to keep it going

Hiked the 12.6 white trail loop. At marker 19a-d it was overgrown with alot of trees down. Difficult to find markers and path was blocked at multiple areas. Would rate that portion of the trail as difficult. Otherwise a great hike with lots to see.

All you can expect and more. Simply beautiful! Great hike!

A very nice leisurely stroll. Would recommend if you're visiting the area and want to experience some of the nature.

Watch your step and keep an eye out for lizards!

The 5 mile orange blaze trail was awesome. Really wanted to do the 13 mile white but it wasn't as clearly marked/overgrown

Flat and easy.

Beautiful and well kept trail. I will be returning at least once a week. There are different loops you can take other than the 6.4 mile loop. The one I just took was 13+ miles (white trail).

Easy flat sandy trail with changes from palm scrub to pine tree terrain. We saw a box turtle on the path. Make sure to bring your swimsuit to cool off at the spring at the end.

My first time here and loving it. So much to do. Will be bringing the whole family back. Right now just walking on the boardwalk with my son who is 3 months old. So looking for more stroller friendly places. But will come back and do the full trail soon.

Our favorite part was finding a park that made the whole family feel welcome by allowing the family pet as well. What better incentive to help us all stay active and enjoy nature. It also gives me a chance to teach my grandchildren responsible considerate and kind dog ownership.

Enjoyable Florida hike through several Florida ecosystems. It's nice to hike through dry scrubs and wetlands all in one short hike.

Bikes are not allowed on this trail.

We went camping end of September. We took a long hike through the trails. The trail is mostly soft sand so it's at times difficult to walk unless you are on the edges. There is no shade once of ever, so prepare yourself with hat and lots of water. Not a trail to go wow! but if cooler it would be a good work out. I would go again but definitely when temperatures are much lower.

I went early on a Friday for my first time on the river and saw tons of wildlife. River otter, turtles, gators and more. At about 11 the river started to get pretty crowded. It seems like a really good party river on the weekends. Next time I go I'm going to start early mid week. I rented a single kayak and there are two options (sit in and sit on). Both of them weren't the best but the sit in kayak was extremely small unstable and uncomfortable so I switched to the sit on kayak and had a better experience. It was still a bit uncomfortable but very stable.

I have also hiked some of the trails around the area. Very easy hike and pretty awesome to see the springs.

Nice easy flat trail.
