Santa Fe River Paddling Trail
This scenic trail begins in O'Leno State Park, where the Santa Fe reappears after flowing underground for more than three miles. This tributary of the Suwannee River curves past hardwood hammocks and through river swamps. Many clear springs feed the Santa Fe and provide cool relief on hot days. There are some small shoals during low water, which can be attempted by intermediate paddlers. Check with local outfitters for current conditions. Due to its scenic qualities, the Santa Fe River is a state-designated Florida paddling trail.
