Overview

Ichetucknee Springs State Park is a favorite among water lovers in florida, but a lesser-known trait of the park is that it houses a diversity of trails and wildlife that make for wonderful hiking. This loop as mapped offers an approachable sampling of the park trails, complete with views of the local springs and connecting rivers, and inevitably a stream of eager tubers.

Need to Know

The park opens at 8am, and you'll have to pay an entrance fee.

Description

From the parking area, follow the Trestle Point Trail south as it makes its way along the Ichetucknee River. When you reach the junction with the Pine Ridge Trail, continue south onto it to loop around to this junction again.

Once you've arrived back at the junction, head left twice on the Trestle Point Trail to return back toward your car.

History & Background

This area is home to an abundance of natural springs, which provide fun recreation for local tubers as well as scuba divers.
