Nice bike trail considering it just follows the main road.

Had a lot of fun here!

Absolutely love these springs!! So clear. Tubing down the river is a must.

This was a nice trail,easy,well marked,loop. It goes by the kayak launch and follows the river the moves of into upland habitat. There is also a bit of a surprise. A ,what's this doing here sort a thing. This is great time of year for Florida hiking.

Take your swimsuit!

This trail is so peaceful. My only advance is obvious - go earlier so you can take your time paddling through. We went twice: One short paddle in an inflatable boat (rented) a few hours before sunset, which was lovely. In addition to a longer canoe ride (rented) started around 11am. Both times no traffic - We passed 2 people on the short paddle and about 3 people on the longer paddle. The views were great, no bug problems, peaceful... don't forget to check out the blue hole if you go off trail a little bit

This paved trail is great for biking. Watch for occasional glass. Pavement and subsequent repairs to it are rough past the itchenatucknee to branford. Have seen dogs on occasion. All in all a scenic North Florida paved trail. Some nice hilly (Florida hilly) terrain between Oleno an ft white.

Love this place, the water is crystal clear and beautiful. There is a trail that goes over to one of the head sprinsg Blue Hole, then another that walks down to the beginning of the river where you can tube. So much greenery, nice and shaded so its not to hot.

The day we ran this beautiful river was a very high water day. Displaced snakes were everywhere, hanging from tree limbs mostly. By the time we got down to the take out point the park had already shut the river down due to the snakes. Aside from the need to keep watch, it was a pleasant trip down the spring fed river. The water is crystal clear. Normally there would be a lot of tubes and canoes on the river, but we had it to ourselves that day.

I came to the area to canoe the Swanee River but wound up canoeing the Ichetucknee River and hiking some area trails. I liked this trail but it was a bit long.

Nice park. I still remember both the hiking trail and the canoe trip down the river. They say this park is often crowded but not on the day I hiked it and paddled the river.

Fun for the Summer. we went to the river and took the float with tubes and had an awesome time!! Very family friendly. Go early to avoid long lines for the park. Recommend you bring your own tube.
