Rock Springs Run State Reserve
Sand pine scrub, pine flatwoods, swamps, and miles of pristine shoreline along Rock Springs Run and the Wekiva River make this reserve a refuge of natural beauty. Visitors can enjoy bicycling, hiking, or horseback riding along 17 miles of trails. Guided trail rides and horse rentals are available. Approximately 17,000 acres of a variety of plant communities typically found throughout Central Florida's landscape. The reserve is located approximately 30 miles north of Orlando and easily located off of I-4 at the exit for State Road 46; then follow State Road 46 west for almost 10 miles. The property was purchased in March 1983 for habitat preservation, for watershed protection and to provide recreational opportunities in the Central Florida area.
